valerie hagarty art

I’ve always been one for the juxtaposition of high and low, beauty and destruction. Coming across the work of Valerie Hegarty it seems that the two worlds I cherish have been united in art matrimony. The cracked walls and  ravaged, destroyed paintings are the signs of Valerie’s work. There is something about finding the beauty in the destruction of Hegarty’s work rather than the making of it. She explores the possibility of fabricating and altering objects with historical reference in order to highlight the past’s relation to the current American socio-political arena.
