William Leavitt's paintings look like he assembled his palettes from Home Depot paint chips, and his drawings look like movie-set versions of 1950s subdevelopments. The fact that roller coasters, futuristic tents and minimalist partitions intersect in his newest renderings, on view at Margo Leavin Gallery, somehow seems natural. You feel like you're looking at the picture of perfect normalcy, when actually you're on a flight of fancy. 812 N. Robertson Blvd., W. Hlywd.; through April 28.
