About

Born in New York 1971 BFA Rhode Island School of Design 1993 Derek Gores tempts the senses in his collage works, recycling magazines, maps, data and other paper materials in his lush figurative works. Considered part of the Pop Surrealism or New Contemporary Movement, Gores exhibits globally, with a client and collector list including Prada, Playboy, Rinascente, Madonna, EA Sports, New England Journal of Medicine, Lincoln Motor Company, Dwell Magazine, Tag Heuer, the National Football League and more. Gores was commissioned as the 2013 Official Artist of the Kentucky Derby, was honored to have his work selected for the Manifest Hope DC exhibit coinciding with the Presidential Inauguration in 2009, and in 2010 was called "One of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement", while in an exhibition in London. In 2017 Gores was commissioned by Playboy Magazine to capture the legacy of Hugh Hefner in a portrait. His works hook you in a luxurious sensory experience with the classic ideals of fashion and travel. Further exploration reveals a modern feminist strength rendered in the freshest of techniques, where the raw ripped scraps give an abstract power. Gores' visual influences of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Franz Kline, mix with the playful spirit of Rube Goldberg, and a poetic freedom with words as well. "I like my pictures to barely come together with teasing little details, where the small pictures add up to a larger one in an unexpected way, maybe triggering memories or daydreams. One friend calls it a 'Zen Narrative', where the story is out in front of me. I enjoy the gap between what you see and what you think you see." Gores' studio is in Melbourne, Florida, where the Space Coast tech intellect mixes with surf culture for a dynamic range of inspiration and wide open blue skies under which to work. The Eisenhauer Gallery has experience shipping artwork around the world.
