Published by Allen Spiegel Fine Arts.
Text by Peter Frank, Alex Ross.

Los Angeles–based artist Kent Williams (born 1962) has built up a formidable reputation as a leading contemporary figurative painter, alongside his thriving career as a creator of graphic novels. Williams’ strong, gestural realism, combined with areas of arresting detail, exhibits abstract and neo-expressionistic sensibilities, as well as autobiographical elements: favorite models, friends, and the artist himself all play a role in the human story of his paintings. This new monograph presents recent paintings completed between 2007 and 2011. As critic Peter Frank explains in one of the catalogue essays, “Williams’ unlikely, often dreamlike naturalism, faithful to appearances but not at all to reality--a kind of supernaturalism--relies on an entirely confident and convincing kind of figure painting, one that acknowledges but does not honor the verities of the body.”

Paintings and Drawings 1992-2007

Published by Allen Spiegel Fine Arts.
Text by Julia Morton, Edward Lucie-Smith.

In his catalogue essay on Los Angeles-based figurative painter and graphic novelist Kent Williams, Edward Lucie-Smith states, "The main thing about Williams' production, whatever form it takes, is that one feels a passionate desire to paint at work, and, in addition to that, a passionate desire to enlarge not only his own imaginative experience, but the imaginative experience of anyone who takes the trouble to give his paintings more than a glance." Quoting freely from influences like Rodin, Schiele, Kahlo, Fischl and Nerdrum, Williams makes dramatic, sexually terse and expressionistic paintings that are deeply riveting, dark and erotic. Female nudes, self-portraits, adolescent boys, landscapes and other nocturnal fantasies all play a role. Bringing together works from 1992 to present, this is the most comprehensive collection of paintings and drawings by Williams to date.
