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 favoured, he emphasised 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 humour to great end, creating work that is sometimes very dark.
