The artwork of Valerie Hegarty born 1967 in Burlington, Vermont, USA almost seems to hover between two worlds: those of art and real life.  Much of Hegarty’s work appears to begin with a classically styled piece of “fine art”: a still life painting, or presidential portrait for example.  In some way, then, the real world begins to impose itself on the work.  Some frames and stretchers begin growing branches and sprouting leaves.  Other paintings are riddled with bullets or burnt by fire.  The story inside the painting violently mingles with a story outside of it. The painted world and the lived world meet to tempestuous result.   via Hi-Fructose

On cycles and red

are so goddamn beautiful
it keeps me up and night
while I’m up
I dwell on things, cycles
I need cigarettes because they smell like my uncle
and remind me of my grandfather
I need you for desperation, need some shape of you to write
nicotine helps me clear my head to write
smoking weed helps open my mind

and for damn sure nothing makes me smoke more of anything than a woman
I wonder if they lead anywhere
or are they just circles
of self loathing and death
