Lavi Daniel is a meat and potatoes painter. At the Armory Center for the Arts, a mid-career overview of his works on canvas, panel and paper is true to the ethos at the heart of his art. Organized by guest curator Anne Ayres, "Parables of Space: Lavi Daniel: A Twenty-Four-Year Survey" puts substance ahead of style.

Lavi Daniel paints pastel bowling pins floating in the air or fields of colored balls suspended as if in an anti-gravitation chamber. The artist is in his early 30s; this is his debut commercial gallery exhibition and it shows. His paint is raw, his handling of space fitful, but he's gifted and can't help showing off. In the ball paintings, some of the circles turn into fields of holes through which we glimpse a figure.

Art-school students tend to believe that success breeds success--that once you finally break out of the rut of group shows in obscure venues and get a solo museum exhibition, the world is your oyster. In fact, of course, there are no guarantees.

Despite cramped quarters, a lot of gardening goes on in this Mar Vista back yard. An old pool and a new studio for artist Lavi Daniel and his wife, textile dealer Diane Dixon, took up much of the space. But good planning by landscape designer Barry Campion turned the remainder into a remarkable garden with a stunning palette of uncommon plants. "The plantings are all-important because they blur the boundaries of the property and soften the new building," Campion says.

In the highly competitive world of fine art--where quality artists can languish as no-names for years--it is uncommon for unknowns to be honored with solo exhibitions in major museums. Such spotlight exposure usually is reserved for established artists whose reputations legitimize the time and expense needed to mount such a show.

The current exhibition at the Municipal Art Gallery in Barnsdall Park is titled "Sensuality in the Abstract." To some that may ring of a contradiction, since things sensual are often confounded with those sexual. A show titled "Abstract Sex" wouldn't make sense and certainly wouldn't be much fun. So what is this exercise really about? It was organized by independent curator Josine Ianco Starrels, who has admirably directed this gallery for some dozen years.

It's said that marketing is the real American genius. The notion is so familiar most people chuckle when they see a product labeled "new and improved." Sure, sure, same thing, different wrapper. Given this, it's nearly impossible to suppress a smile on encountering the Pasadena Armory's current exhibition, "Practice and Process: New Painterly Abstraction in California."

Rocking chairs and excitement go together like oil and water. In the popular imagination, such old-fashioned chairs have long been associated with lazy afternoons whiled away on comfortable porches. Excitement, on the contrary, comes in all shapes and sizes--except that of the rocking chair, which shares more with the soothing back-and-forth motion of a baby's cradle than with the breakneck speed of a supersonic jet.

VISITING the Cheviot Hills garden of Lavi Daniel and Renee Claire is like entering an Alice in Wonderland world where plants are aflame in winter colors and flowers look like pine cones sprouting from the soil. Waves of yellows and grays, oranges and lime greens roll and tumble all the way to the ash, eucalyptus and sycamore trees on the parkway, an optical illusion that makes the 5,500-square-foot corner lot appear much larger than it is. Three years ago, Daniel and Claire were almost finished remodeling their home and installing paths and patios.
