deconstructed america....

The work of Valerie Hegarty.... oh my!

From her page at the saatchi artist archives:

For Valerie Hegarty, the joy of her work lies in its destruction rather than its making. Centring her practice on the politics of the American myth, Hegarty's canvases and sculptures replicate emblems of frontier ethos - colonial furniture, antique dishware, and heroic paintings of landscapes and national figures only to demolish them by devices associated with their historical significance.

gorgeous deconstruction...gorgeous palette...gorgeous
