Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie HegartyJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 16 Jul 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work, who we became familiar with when the work was exhibited on the High Line and then in Marlborough Gallery in NYC in 2012. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013.
The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?
