In the past, artist Elliott Hundley has often built up his works, layering images or pinning cutouts of photographed figures onto his sprawling collages, so that they dangle in space. These works resembled tapestries, intensely intricate but still very much on the surface. This time, the artist, who's always mining and reimagining classic mythology, sewed and dug into his canvases. The best ones in his new Regen Projects show, like fugitive song or the sound of its own ringing, are expanses of swirling, manic, multicolored energy with embroidery-surrounded, cavelike recesses near the middle. If you tumbled in, you'd probably find yourself in a decadently beautiful but menacing purgatory. 6750 Santa Monica Blvd.; Hlywd.; through May 17. (310) 276-5424,
