The book you see on the table in Richard Telles Fine Art's foyer now says E-thay Inward-Yay Ourney-Jay on its cover, but it used to say The Inward Journey. Artist Dan Finsel rewrote the title in Pig Latin. Then underneath the title he inserted a photograph of himself, looking official but doing something strange with small sculptures that resemble kitchen supplies, and painted the same modish, pink and orange design from the book's cover on the divider wall that separates foyer from main gallery. It's tasteful and psychologically perverse at the same time, as are the other works in the show: handcrafted tables with odd tableaux on their tops, portraits of Finsel with a tail coming out of his mouth, or paintings of what look like misshapen wrought-iron hearts. 7380 Beverly Blvd.; through April 20. (323) 965-5578, tellesfineart.com.
