Paintings by Kent Williams

Erotica // Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Kent Williams has built up a formidable reputation as a powerful contemporary painter. His is a bold realism with combined attributes of abstraction and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. His work is characterized by strong gestural forms combined with areas of arresting detail, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork. Williams’ approach to his subjects is often subjective and intense.

Kent Williams: "Lord of the Flies"

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 03, 2014
A few months back, we showed you a preview of Kent Williams' excellent new works shown in "Ophthalm" at Evoke Contemporary in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Part of that show was a series of drawings titled "Lord of the Flies," and today we have a full look at the series. Maybe you need a little William Golding inspiration to start your year off?

Kent Williams "OPHTHALM" @ Evoke Contemporary, Santa Fe

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 22, 2013
If you happen to be in Santa Fe, New Mexico before the month is over, we suggest going to see highly erotic new works from painter Kent Williams. Ophthalm is now open at Evoke Contemporary, showing the Los Angeles-based painters wide-range of both surrealism with bits of realistic figurative elements drawn into each work. This show has both fine art paintings and sketches of various styles, both of nudes and "Lord of the Flies" styled portraits. As Williams notes of his work, it's, "a way to weave the tangible with the intangible."

Newer Works by Kent Williams

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 02, 2012
We just did a little check up on one of our favorite painters, Los Angeles painter Kent Williams and what he has been working on over the past few years. As you can see, he has been creating some dense, dreamy canvases. We also love that in his bio it mentions that Meg White has collected his work.
