Quarantine Masks (2020)
Quarantine Masks were a result of my studio practice during the early months of Covid-19 lockdown orders. Once the initial mask came to life I found great joy in the simple act and studio experimentation began to evolve naturally. Materials that I’ve kept available in my practice for years naturally found their way into these early masks.

Overboard (2019)
A selection of Zegel's "pool paintings" are filled with metaphors and informed by everyday life. Exploring a variety of mediums and rendering personal experience camouflaged as imaginary swimming pools the work challenges the viewer to explore the meaning behind every shape and object surrounding the pool.
