Valerie Hegarty, Born in Burlington, Vermont, Hegarty received an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, most recently Figure, Flowers, Fruit at the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in New York and Autumn on the Hudson Valley with Branches, a High Line Public Art Project in New York. For Valerie Hegarty, the joy of her work lies in its destruction rather than its making. Centering 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. This description doesn’t even come close to touching the essence of this profound artist.
