Art of the Day: Derek Hess 2

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 02/27/2007 - 17:54.

One of my favorite NEO-raised and based artists is Derek Hess, who is featured on Art of the Day here, and whose last exhibit - with Bask, the last ever for 1300 Gallery, with which Hess was affiliated - was really outstanding... write-up here. At Derek's previous exhibition at 1300, I was really struck by the drawing above and below. While only 6" or so wide and tall, both the image and the execution are so powerful, and demonstrate Derek's exceptional technique, design and line. This original work was only $150 - about the only original work by Derek I could ever afford - and one of my favorites in my home. I thought others would enjoy seeing this - I know we all hope to see Derek's next show in NEO soon! Read more below to see the whole image... feel free to comment.
