George Segel "Blue Nude on Black Bed"
I chose this sculpture by George Segal 1976 because I thought it was cool that when I first looked at the sculpture I didn't see the man laying in the bed. I think Segel used blue to represent the sorrow the woman may of been feeling and to should emotion. George Segal's goal was to explore the mundane images of life. He explored how people connected both emotionally and physically to their environment. He chose his subjects so that they could best depict the routine of ordinary life and how these routines alienate us from one another.
