    About The Work

    Photorealist painter Jessica Hess defies convention even within her carefully precise images—executing magnificent graffiti landscapes and broken urban scenes with an almost cinematic lightheartedness. In this darkly ominous work Fire Damage, Hess depicts a burnt, derelict building in two overlapping frames—one highly detailed and the other blurry like a forgotten memory. Using traditional painting as an unlikely means of depicting such an ephemeral contemporary subject, Hess makes the case for the validity and importance of street art, dilapidated buildings and forgotten cityscapes in the art-historical canon.
