Summary George Segal constructs a type of human form and vulnerability that feels rare in the world of sculpture. As we follow his process at the isolated New Jersey farmhouse that serves as his studio, the intimacy between Segal and his art is contagious. He casts people who he knows, respects and admires, making the final outcome of the piece seep with personality and humanity. Segal is focused on creating a mold that does not necessarily subscribe to society's notion of beauty. Weary of the department store mannequins who root themselves in unrealistic perfection, Segal strives to capture the beauty of individuality and human flaw. By doing so, he gives his subjects and undeniable sense of life. Segal also applies his love of painting to his sculptures, using color to portray feeling and to dictate the context within his scenes. Through his bold exploration of body and mind, Segal casts both the physical and emotional trials of human life and presents them to us through a riveting display of work
