This artwork gives the impression of being the plaster cast of a seated woman, when in fact it is a whitened bronze. Segal began ‘double casting’ his sculptures in the late 1960s: he would wrap his sculptures in bandages soaked in liquid plaster, thus creating matrices for a second cast. By the 1980s he was applying this technique to his bronzes. While bronze is traditionally associated with prestige, durability and suitability to the art form, plaster is considered to be inferior, cheap and subservient. With his white bronze casts, Segal stands material hierarchical order on its head.
