At a time when technology seems to be all about getting more people to see more images more quickly and clearly than ever before, Jennifer Pastor's “Endless Arena” comes across as a wonderfully nutty throwback to a bygone era. The spindly sculpture, in a small back gallery at Regen Projects, resembles nothing so much as the armature for some kind of homegrown experiment or the framework for an ad-hoc stage set. It's both and more. But you won't know that if you don't look closely.

A single sculpture by Jennifer Pastor commands the space at Richard Telles Fine Art with sober authority. One could argue that sober and authority are odd words to use in relation to a work whose kitsch potential hovers at a stratospheric level.

It is three weeks before Thanksgiving and Los Angeles is wilting under record-high temperatures. The sky is ribboned with a special effects concoction of pink and aqua, the hyper-real enhancements that represent seasonal change in Southern California.

Nature and Artifice: Jacci Den Hartog has transformed Christopher Grimes Gallery into an enchanting space of expansive beauty simply by affixing a single, modestly scaled sculpture to each of its walls. The limited number of works in this exhibition is belied by the ambition, intelligence and devotion embodied by every miniature rock, tree and swirl of water in these captivating landscapes.

In the art world, as in any other subculture, certain themes are ubiquitous at certain moments. Right now, the collective myth of Nature is one of them--as in Jennifer Pastor's hyperbolic sculptures "The Four Seasons," Matthew Barney's perverse imagery of utopias and Elizabeth Bryant's artfully dismembered landscapes--the latter at Gallery LASCA.

The "Invitational 93" at Regen Projects showcases four Los Angeles artists at the beginning of their careers: Frances Stark, Jennifer Pastor, Toba Khedoori and Catherine Opie. Disparate in style, medium and subject matter, their work shares at least one quality--the strong sense of a controlling artistic persona. These personas are positioned along a graded continuum. On one end, we get the self-in-training--incipiency (however tongue-in-cheek) as identity.

Jennifer Pastor's magnificent, eye-popping sculpture of five raucously decorated artificial Christmas trees, all engulfed in a catastrophic deluge of simulated water formed from shimmering sheets of clear plastic, is such a startling and beautiful image that you can hardly bear to take your eyes off it. Instantly, the sculpture sears itself into your memory.
