Barbara Ségal is a sculptor and master stone carver, who lives and works in Yonkers, NY. She studied at Pratt Institute, NY, and the L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. She has worked in the great marble studios in Italy, alongside artists and artisans such as Jacques Lipshitz, Augustin Cárdenas, and Max Bill at Tommasi Fonderia and SGF Studio Scultura. Ségal’s work has been exhibited extensively in galleries and museums across the United States and Europe. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the White House among others, as well as in many private collections, including those of Leslie Wexner of Unlimited, Malcolm Forbes, and MFI in Austin, Texas. Ségal has also received public commissions, including the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) Arts for Transit commission. This large scale aluminum work, “Muhheakantuck,” is sited on the viaduct of the Metro North Yonkers station. Today, Ségal’s work explores innovative ways of merging new technologies with the ancient tradition of stone carving. With an eye schooled in the forms, patterns and textures of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces, Ségal creates pop and fashion icons in rare and exquisite stones.
