His name is my name, too

Painter Robert Russell did a Google image search for Robert Russell and, unsurprisingly, found a range of strange-, striking- and stereotypical-looking men. He painted a number of them, doing so fastidiously on linen stretched over medium-sized frames. There's the man with the scruffy blond beard, the blond boy who must be right out of the 1950s, and the nerdy guy with Bill Gates-worthy glasses. Russell hung all the other Russells on one wall at François Ghebaly and considers them a single artwork. 2600 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City; through Aug. 10. (310) 280-0777, ghebaly.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 13. Continues through Aug. 10, 2013
