First you see the swirl of purple graffiti, then the broken glass and the splashes of dirty water. Then, finally, you might see the painted toenails and platform heels that are the subject of Marilyn Minter's painting Not in These Shoes. The painting is 13½ feet across, billboard size, yet produced so meticulously that it still looks sleek and glamorous. But in this painting and others in her current show at Regen Projects, Minter makes glamour monstrous and confusing. 6750 Santa Monica Blvd.; through May 11. (310) 276-5424,

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 6. Continues through May 11, 2013
