Don't feel sad for the mess of masterpieces Valerie Hagerty has created, as they have been deliberately destroyed. From burning fires to bird pecks and rotten fruit, each artwork encourages people to enjoy their surroundings and creations while they can. Anything can be taken it away, be it through natural causes or terrible accidents.
Based in New York City, Valerie Hagerty works with various materials to convey these sentiments. Using bent wood, oil paintings and more, Valerie Hagerty manipulates traditional and classic scenes to shock people out of their comfort zones. Nothing lasts forever nor is anything ever perfect. Valerie Hagerty devastatingly and poetically shows the world that hard truth through her impressive works of art.
