Through the looking glass
Nevio de Zolt's Window, a new light-box video by artist Brian Bress, is both meta and mundane. You first see the bangs, long hair and shoulders of a girl who looks as if she's been drawn on drywall, only her face has been busted in. Through the hole where her features should be, you see a tall, shuttered, Italian window. At first a woman's very large eyes are reflected in the glass. Then a professorial man opens the window and looks from right to left, not too urgently. If he knows he's being watched, he doesn't care. Bress' Window is on view at Cherry & Martin, in a group show that also includes two sculptures by artist Nathan Mabry: a funny terra-cotta bat and wolf, both perched on pretentious walnut pedestals. 2712 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through Aug. 31. (310) 559-0100, cherryandmartin.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 20. Continues through Sept. 7, 2013
