Explosive Paintings Reach Beyond the Traditional Frame
In these artworks by artist Valerie Hegarty, it looks like the walls have exploded with an array of fruits, foliage, and decay. At first glance, one might think they are viewing art that has been destroyed. However, Hegarty is well-known for her explosive work that reaches out, beyond a flat area and into three-dimensional space.

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

Evolution is amazing. It is not what the animal (or plant, in instances) wants, it’s about what it needs, and it is needed because it is ideal for survival in it’s habitat. From it’s exterior likeness of a leaf, to the swaying motions that mimic a leaf in the breeze.. it seems almost too perfect a disguise not to be a conscious decision. But it isn’t. It’s the product of the right hereditary genes being passed down due to the survival of their predecessors, where the ones that were not so keenly disguised by tiny mutations were not fit to survive the predators and conditions of their environment, and the ones that did survive mutated a little more every generation so subtly as to become what they are at present, and to continue to change accordingly in future generations. Life is incredible.
