Bondage art

Nancy Grossman started drawing and sculpting her leather-bound figures years before Quentin Tarantino made Pulp Fiction, but, still, they all resemble Tarantino's gimp: forever faceless, stoic though vulnerable, all signs of personality covered up by the leather, buckles and straps. A few of her "heads" from the 1960s, porcelain busts with perfectly black leather masks stretched tightly over everything but their nostrils, stand on pedestals at Marc Selwyn Fine Art. Drawings like #11, of a man with a long, defiant collarbone and stained blue paper over his face, hang on the walls. 6222 Wilshire Blvd.; through Dec. 22. (323) 933-9911, marcselwynfineart.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 3. Continues through Dec. 22, 2012
