About this title


Throughout his 40 year career F Scott Hess has painted against the grain of the contemporary art world. In this comprehensive monograph, we witness Hess steadfastly going his own way. In the 80s, a period in which conceptual art was favored, he emphasized figurative work with narrative themes. His rebellious nature is further exposed as his career progresses and he confronts and explores societal taboos. Although much of Hess subject matter is challenging, he also employs humor to great end, leavening work that is sometimes very dark. His stylistic influences are many, reflecting both his formal studies and his extensive travels. During his time studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he received the Theodor Körner award. In the 1990s, he spent a year in residency in Iran on a J. Paul Getty Fellowship. More recently Hess painting was chosen as the cover art for the book Realismus in Der Bildenden Kunst (Realism in the Visual Arts Europe and N. America 1830 2000, Gebr. Mann Verlag, 2013). He has shown with galleries the world over and currently resides in Los Angeles, California, USA.
