Intimacy issues

April Street's paintings and wall-hanging sculptures, on view at Carter & Citizen, have complicated body language. Made of painted cloth and pantyhose, sometimes stretched tight over canvas, sometimes drooping or woven into ropes, they have complicated relationships to one another, too. In the painting Man has always doubled himself as a means of understanding himself, stiff hosiery that's stretched across one canvas twists out, drooping across the wall that twists up to stretch across another canvas. The two canvases feel like conjoined twins that easily could have been surgically separated but decided instead to stay attached indefinitely, until they stopped noticing that the other one was even there. 2648 La Cienega Ave.; through Oct. 13.
