Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe's new works are less abstract paintings than sophisticated essays about abstract painting. Their appeal is neither emotional (no impassioned brushwork means no soul-shaking catharses); nor is it primarily aesthetic (in these images, the manipulation of light, color and structure is underwhelming, at best).

The faded words "Learn to Fly" emblazon the Santa Monica Airport Quonset hut where Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe rents his studio. Standing in the doorway, he blinks his pale eyes as though vaguely astonished to see a visitor. With his short-cropped hair and wire glasses, he resembles the British military officer he might have become. Instead, as a painter and critic, he organizes battles of an aesthetic nature.

Isn't it just like FBI Director Louis Freeh--a man of true integrity--to place the blame on himself for the FBI allowing the White House to obtain copies of the files of prominent Republicans (June 15). And isn't it just like Bill Clinton--the "leader" of the free world--to shirk responsibility and attempt to blame someone else. KENNETH D. DeGIORGIO Los Angeles Why is no one asking the Republicans the question they've been asking the White House for the past two-plus years: What have they got to hide?

Walking into Kuhlenschmidt/Simon gallery, you never quite know what drop-dead gesture will be awaiting your attention. This time, it's a series of paintings by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe, "History and Seduction Paintings (Act II)." That seems to be as good a title as any for squares of linen covered with a more-or-less solid color field relieved by a few thin color stripes snuggled up to the right and left edges of the painting.

As THE educational leaders of the Art Center College of Design, we would like to respond to the article "Uproar at Art Center" (by Mike Boehm, June 11), which we find selective in its sources and unbalanced in its perception. While there is indeed a passionate debate about many important issues at Art Center, we are a creative community engaged in the ongoing improvement of our education and facilities, and we expect and encourage different opinions about our future direction. However, the article paints an incomplete portrait of the college that is simply not accurate.

"Dark as a Space" introduces three young artists who play with ideas of depth and surface in various ways. Lynne Baxter clots sharply demarcated portions of steel mesh rectangles with a goopy mixture of wax and black paint. Fandra Chang stretches filmy fabric printed with wood-grain designs over lengths of wood. And Laura Cooper coats flat, curving aluminum shapes with thin skins of paint.

In "U.S. Interest Lies With Oil, Not Kurds in Iraq" (editorial, Sept. 10), you succinctly define the U.S. policymakers as merchants of oil. I am not surprised that the Kurdish question has again become a "negotiable" issue both from within and without. While the West is disclaiming any moral obligations under the pretext of Kurdish civil war, the sycophant Masoud Barzani marches on under the protection of the archenemy of the Kurds. This is only a brief yet painful moment in history, but only those who defend the truth, rather than their interests, will be the moral victors of tomorrow.
