Steven Assael (born 1957) is an American painter recognized nationally as one of the leading representational figurative artists of his generation His portrayal of the human image is empathic, ennobling, and psychologically penetrating. Assael’s figure compositions synthesize the characteristics of the past masters with a selective eye for the present, suffusing elements of naturalism and romanticism to blend contemporary techniques with those of the past.
Assael’s paintings have been called Post-Post Modern. He works strictly from live models. Arlene Raven describes him as wanting “the greater possibilities of duration. More variety, and a broader range of values and colors, a chronicle of the transformations of changing light, spent over real minutes and hours with his model.” In speaking of his work and how it contributes to contemporary art, Assael stated that, “Even though art is dead as we have known it, painting is not.”
Born and raised in New York, NY, Assael showed an enthusiasm for art at a young age, taking art classes at the Museum of Modern Art at the age of four. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York and at The New York Academy of Art.
Assael’s work is included in public and private collections around the world. In 1999, his work was exhibited in a ten-year retrospective at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington and CBS Sunday Morning ran a feature on the artist and the show.
Assael is represented by Forum Gallery and currently resides in New York City.

F. Scott Hess, The Night, 1988, oil on canvas, 84 × 104 inches, Peter Norton Family Foundation

LCAD MFA and BFA Instructor F. Scott Hess’s The Paternal Suit: Heirlooms from the F. Scott Hess Family Foundation is currently on view through October 5th at Long Beach Museum of Art

The Paternal Suit: Heirlooms from the F. Scott Hess Family Foundation consists of more than 100 paintings, prints, and objects assembled by contemporary Los Angeles artist F. Scott Hess. The exhibit, which will run through October 5, will be presented as legitimate historical artifacts, supported by photographs, documents, and historical ephemera. Each object and artwork bears an artist’s name and detailed provenance and has been executed in the style of the century from which it originates. Sculpture, ceramics, furniture, toys, newspaper clippings, historic photographs, guns, and costumes advance the story.

Hess does not claim authorship for the majority of works on display. Instead, he ascribes to them fictional artists, referring to himself as the Director of the “F. Scott Hess Family Foundation.” A film by Susan Carney and Shirin Bazleh will also be part of the exhibition. The film includes interviews with Hess at his home in Los Angeles, insight into his creative process, still images of works in the exhibition, and an overview of the captivating history of his paternal family side.

The exhibition follows Hess’s ancestral lineage from 17th century England to the Puritan settlements of South Carolina and Georgia, where family members became key players in the American Civil War (1861-1865). Through the prism of his ancestry, Hess examines the impact of false history and deception within each generation and throughout society as a whole, and questions the authority of perceived “truths.”
