Take that works of art! These deconstructed pieces are brought to you by Valerie Hagerty, who demonstrates that old glam rock adage "you don't know what you've got till it's gone", with art that appears to be falling to pieces right before your eyes.
Her deliberate deconstruction makes you further appreciate the work that went into each piece before they came under the knife, or gun or blowtorch, and I imagine this type of artwork will be all the rage after the apocalypse.
Now when your tripped out friend says "the paintings are melting", your sober mind can confirm this fact and help him avoid having a bad trip. Check out more of Valerie's works at the links below, before they fall to the floor in a pile of pigment and rotten canvas.
