In my work I usually combine painting and sculpture with objects, fitting them together spatially into boxes that I construct. I find that this combination of media makes more likely the opportunities to discover the happy accidents that lead to spiritual order.
I paint and sculpt in a straight forward manner to best achieve harmony between the two dimensional image and the three dimensional form. The coming together of the different elements allows the work to become first image, then object, and ultimately a blending of the two. This merging allows me the role of the artist, craftsperson, and finally witness.
Jon Segan studied art at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY. Although he graduated in 1977, he did not start making art until 2006. It was during those years that he acquired the skills and experiences necessary to do
his work which involves painting, sculpture, and assemblage.
