An american artist creates amazing art objects by tearing them apart! 10/9/2015 •

What do you think art is? Valery Hegarty is an American artist who presents her own point of view. She creates surrealistic installations that fascinate and scare you at the same time.


Valery managed to cut through the clutter by constructing the strangest art objects. All her creations are critically engaged in art history, but she somehow violates modern norms of beauty.

Her style is unique as while producing her installations she uses not only canvas and coloring but also fire, insects, animals, fruits and even natural forces (for example, floods or earthquakes).

Valery says that she is eager to show the darkest side of American society. That is why all her works are distressed: she imagines the impact of both natural and man-made disasters on the art objects.

Once during her solo show she filled the entire space with beautiful "rusted" seascapes. Actually, she often returns to shipwrecks as they do possess some inexplicable magic, don't you think so?

If you liked Valerie Hegarty's art, share it with friends!

if you don't truly believe these beautiful objects are art you need to go to the Philadelphia modern Museum of Art to see real garbage

Very interesting and surreal. It does show how lifelike and truthful her artwork depicts man-made and mother nature.

I don't like her work at all. I really don't understand why some people seem to focus on the dark side of things. Her "Art" is quite scary.

While some may view Valerie's artwork as dark or scary, I found it very refreshing to come across such a unique and nontraditional form of expression. Her works intrigue and move me. I plan to go to one of her exhibitions in NYC as soon as possible!
