Derek Hess opened his show at Rotofugi, it sold well and was a pleasure in person. Rotofugi always curates a good show and this of course was no exception. Derek’s recent works include various sketches, as well as his redefined versions of vintage playboy covers. His interpretations feel like rejections of the female forms that peak from behind. The women he has sketched on top are more real, with a sense of motion and sensuality. This is in direct contrast with the plasticized versions of sexuality offered on the covers, creating a question in the viewers mind. The show runs through early March and is a must-see for anyone coming through Chicago.
