Nine longish, rectangular strips of subdued color painted on a large sheet of paper lean to the right in Molly Larkey's Amplify, while seven smaller squares of color lean to the left. One more rectangle of color, a deep blue, has been drawn with chalk pastel onto a separate, much smaller piece of paper. Affixed to the bigger paper, this small strip hangs slackly off the bottom. It's because of the leaning and hanging that Amplify, currently hung alone in a side gallery at Commonwealth & Council, pulls you in. 3006 W. Seventh St.; through June 29. (213) 703-9077,

Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 8. Continues through June 29, 2013
