Coming in July: KENT WILLLIAMS: OPHTHALM
Redolent with carnal force and brimming with erotic volatility, Kent Williams’ highly personal approach to “uneasy realism” casts focus on the emotional states and expressive personalities of his subjects. Presented in large 12” x 12” hardcover format, this 160 page volume exhibits numerous drawings culled from Williams’ personal sketchbooks as well as those that served as the basis for this collected selection of his often terse and physiognomically poignant paintings.
”His current paintings and drawings interweave the transitive states of dream and waking made in a heady mix of representational precision and breathlessly animated abstract gestures. Pure and simple, whether manifest as delicately jostled or fluently robust, Williams’ revered strain of para-objective mark-making stages some of the most seductive narrative and formal play generated by any artist at work today.” –From the essay by Alex Ross
