Sculptures that appear to be catastrophically rupturing paintings

Valerie Hegarty makes mixed-media painting/sculptures where the paintings appear to be taking on three dimensionality and bursting out of their frames and off their canvases. The effect is very convincing and disturbing, conveying a sense of collapse and destruction. A selection of Hegary's work was recently exhibited on the High Line in NYC.
