Rachel Lulov Segall
Painter working in Acrylic, and mixed media (Acrylic and Oil) on canvas, and Egg Tempera; and lives and works in Manhattan.
I create representational paintings which have strong narrative, most often with a liminal quality and content which always invites the viewers to become emotionally involved. I want you to be drawn into the narrative of the painting, be intrigued by the liminal aspect and emotionally moved, as you enjoy the beauty of the color, form and paint.
The role of women, the inner life of children, New York City streets, parks, interiors and people, are the predominant subject matter.
My paintings have been selected for inclusion in juried shows at the Borough President of Manhattan’s Office, and for the 2nd Annual Summer Show at The Vytlacil Art Campus in Sparkill, NY.
