The Diner

George Segal, The Diner, 1964-1966
 Plaster, wood, chrome, laminated plastic, masonite, lamp, glass, and paper

I really liked this situational sculpture of The Diner. It reminds me of the Edward Hooper painting Nighthawks. Segal's sculptures usually do not have much precise detail or color, which I personally do not care for, but I can appreciate the uniqueness of it. Segal would drape the figures in the plaster and carefully cut them out of it, when creating his works.
