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

Another *magic skin* vs high detail.
Uhg i just so love the high detail one. Like look at it!
The power of editing. I took the picture first with no filter. Then added a *magic skin* filter. Blemishes gone, skin fairer, the yellow from the lights removed. After that i just wanted to see what would happen if i put all the details back. I shot up the sharpness and structure. I almost like the picture with all the details more.
It was gross for me to look at and i really liked that.
Well anyway played with the selfie on my phone and this was the result.
