Artist David Sigmund has been building his own renditions of stupas, the mound-like structures used to house Buddhist relics and for meditation. His are far smaller than the ones he saw when visiting India a while back, and seductively smooth. There's one with an orb for a head, made of layers of bleached wood seamlessly laminated together, then varnished, at Papillion. It's part of “Open,” the gallery's debut show in its new Leimert Park location, the same building the Davis brothers occupied when they ran the fantastic Brockman Gallery in the 1960s and '70s. 4336 Degnan Blvd., Leimert Park; through April 13. papillionart.com.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: March 5. Continues through April 13, 2014
