The joke's in there somewhere
Five extremely narrow canvases hang on the wall opposite the entrance to "La Jennifer," Dianna Molzan's current show at Overduin and Kite. Three are black, two gray, and each has one eye and a pair of bright red lips, though at first glance you might take them for abstractions. The same goes for the show's highlight, two fairly large, paired canvases with green backgrounds and cloudlike, colored shapes floating across circles of white at their centers. After you've looked for a little while, the white circles begin to resemble cartoon eyes with reflections of the sunset dancing across them. What seemed serious becomes funny. 6693 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; through Dec. 21. (323) 464-3600, overduinandkite.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 12. Continues through Dec. 21, 2013
