Valerie Hegarty’s Paintings and Installations Literally Drip out of Their Frames

Mildewed dressers are way past their peak. Desks are chopped in half. Paintings overflow.

Diggin’ on Valerie Hegerty’s works on canvas that drip and melt their way to the floor, and across the gallery spaces in which they’re installed. She perfectly captures an acidic energy. And some of the artist’s use of overgrowth is really brilliant. These make you wonder- does everyone decay and die like this eventually? Are we all just waiting to lose control of our faculties? Hegerty’s work celebrates the losses that are just as integral to life as gains.  (via)
