Decaying Paintings


Humans have a tendency to want to fight time and create things that last forever.  But there is something very beautiful about how a fragile material ages, and changes over time. 

Valerie Hegarty challenges the way we think about art by creating pieces that are already decaying and decrepit.  Her art is battered, torn and damaged.  It has already been burned, shot, drowned or eaten by bugs... so now you don't have to worry about it, just enjoy it.  (Found through My Formative).
