Michelle Segre

Michelle Segre is a multimedia textile sculptor, born in Israel and currently lives and works in New York City. She holds an MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Rome and a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art. Her sculptures intertwine materials such as metal, yarn, paper, plaster and ephemeral substances such as beeswax, moldy bread and mushrooms, into pieces that suggest the relationship between nature and the universe. Michelle's work has been included in various national and international solo and group exhibitions, her most recent being a solo show at the Lumber Room in Portland, OR. She has been awarded various prestigious grants and fellowships including the Colene Brown Art Prize and the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. Her work has also been featured in a vast array of publications and public collections at the Colorado University Art Museum in Boulder, Colorado, the Katonah Museum of Art, in Katonah, New York and The Museum of Modern Art, in New York City.
