Valerie Hegarty makes an atmosphere for her painting and framed work. Valerie crosses painting into sculpture. Valerie's work is kind of what I want to do, sculpture/furniture with photography. I like how she transforms spaces into something totally different then what it was like before. Her creation of work is more then just a painting it brings the viewer in to the painting, literally. Valerie keeps a nice balance between torn up, wrecked, work and modern, classic, functional work. It amazes me how she can take something right to the line without crossing over to making it look trashy.
