The three smallest oil paintings in Noah Davis' new exhibition, "The Missing Link," at Roberts & Tilton, hang facing each other inside a narrow, free-standing corridor built of cloth-covered partitions. You have to lean your head in to really see the images: a portrait of a black-and-white baby tumbling back in a somersault, a funny beige shape that could as easily be a boulder as a misshapen bagel, and a dark face with features that are hard to pick out. Like the best of Davis' work, this claustrophobic installation feels like a hazy dream you're being pulled into and pushed out of at the same time. 5801 Washington Blvd.; through March 30. (323) 549-0223, robertsandtilton.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 23. Continues through March 30, 2013
