American Jewish Museum presents Jerry Segal: Where Stars Are Born and Infinity Imagined

Jerry Segal Opening reception Wednesday, July 13, 7-9pm

Paintings by Jerry Segal: Where Stars Are Born and Infinity Imagined includes a broad selection of recent paintings by Segal representing the cosmos. Notably, in this new body of work he has cast aside paintbrushes and works out the compositions entirely with his hands.

Segal began painting the universe’s vastness in 2007. The sheer limitlessness and optically abstract nature of the universe, devoid of horizon lines and depths of field, remains an ongoing lure for him. Hubble Space Telescope discoveries and its contributions to astronomy, the immeasurable potential of future discoveries and the Hubble’s imagery of unfathomable interstellar formations provide Segal with rousing possibilities.

His luminous paintings, interpretations of gaseous constellations that exist in the far reaches of the solar system, likewise spur curiosity about the nature of human existence within the grand scheme of the universe.
