There are succulents and squares of colored paper in Brice Bischoff's Glassell Park photographs, and there also are succulents and paper squares on a cabinet in the middle of his “Glassell Park Series” show at Cirrus Gallery downtown. That's the idea: The photographs will be shown along with their subjects, sources and inspirations. The best of the photos, all taken in Bischoff's Glassell Park studio (hence the series' title), imbues their subjects with a psychedelic kind of mysticism, like the one in which a flash of white interrupts a dark cloth draping to the floor, or the one in which hazy spots of pink-and-orange light populate the space behind a globular tower of clay. 542 S. Alameda St., dwntwn.; through April 6. (213) 680-3473,
