Because so many of them are made of stainless steel, the sculptures in Kathryn Andrews' exhibition “D.O.A. | D.O.B.” (dead on arrival / date of birth) at David Kordansky gallery at first seem cool and pretentious. Then you get closer and see a birthday letter sitting in the drawer at the foot of the steel bed frame, and notice the clown faces on the window frames, or realize the shiny silver tubes are just the right size for a human body to hide inside, and the coolness begins to warm. 3143 S. La Cienega Blvd., Unit A; through Feb. 2. (310) 558-3030,

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 15. Continues through Feb. 2, 2012
