Truly breathtaking. NYC-based artist Valerie Hegarty’s artwork often poses as artifacts of art history gone awry. Ravaged paintings, 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.
Working with fragile materials such as foamcore, paper, paint and glue, she exploits a scrupulous mimicry of objects only to demolish them by devices often associated with their historical significance –
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?
Brock Davis is an award-winning, multidisciplinary artist and creative director with a knack for creating ground-breaking work.
Brilliant conceptualist and player with things of myriad types and scopes, Davis spends his free time taking countless iPhone photos of the things he made happen to other things: and those things are pretty damn sweet.
