George Segal was part of the Pop Art movement, yet he maintained a distinctive style, incorporating ordinary situations in which the subject is shown in a state of isolation amidst an anonymous society.
Segal is most known for his life-sized, all-white plaster sculptures of human figures in realistic environments. In his 1975 Blue Jeans series, the printing plates were created by pressing actual human models into the resin coated plates, capturing his interest in the human body. Segal stated, "I think a minute of existence is miraculous and extraordinary."
