New York-based artist Valerie Hegarty is known for previously creating a series of decaying artworks. Her new collection is based on a study of what happens to fine art over time, if they are neglected. The decay of paintings can be seen melting and dripping to the ground as an unusual visual effect. The wooden frames, due to exposure to the elements, have grown out to become unruly branches that actually develop in a monstrous form.

This surreal technique lures the viewer into a captivating environment that opens eyes. These decaying artworks have made quite an impression that turns heads in the past. Now they have become more realistic with these natural features that essentially explode from the portrait to create a dynamic visual experience.
