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."

One of our favorite artists we saw this weekend in NYC for Frieze and surrounding fairs was Fay Ku at the Eight Modern booth in Pulse. Eight Modern, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, had a few strong pieces from the Taiwan-born Ku, who has built a body of work on paper that "recalls the callousness and lack of empathy of children, who have not yet learned the customs and niceties adults use to mask society's true savagery."
