Profane World of F. Scott Hess (17 images)

F. Scott Hess is an American painter and conceptual artist. He has described himself as a” reluctant realist” whose work is nevertheless grounded in Old Master craft and the representation of observed detail… Art critic Donald Kuspit suggests, “Hess uses profane realism to represent the sacred moments of life, for he knows we live in a profane world with little or no sense of the sacred, let alone of the sacredness of art”.
