Pink is the dominant color in Camilo Restrepo's aggressively over-full drawings at Steve Turner Contemporary, a choice that somehow underscores the absurdity of the macho violence the artist is depicting. Based in Colombia, always on the periphery of the drug violence there, Restrepo has been doing lots of sketchbook drawings, then tearing them out and attaching them to one another, creating large expanses of knotty red veins, characters with guns to their head, cartoon graphics and newspaper clippings, always with that fleshy shade of pink popping up. 6026 Wilshire Blvd., Miracle Mile; through May 31. (323) 931-3721, steveturnercontemporary.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 3. Continues through May 31, 2014
