In the lofty main gallery of the Santa Monica Museum of Art, Liga Pang is overseeing the construction of her room-sized installation using bamboo, part of a "New Work" show. While that may suggest a thicket of tall and solid poles, the raw materials of her opus are the twiggy tips of Japanese bamboo, thousands and thousands of them, painstakingly tied together to create a delicate web that hints at the dual essence of bamboo, flexible but strong, simple yet versatile.

Liga Pang signs in at the joyous end of Expressionism with a show of big new paintings. Though some works advance a cautionary note--a pointed finger before a face in a two-panel painting called "Shhh," an intimate couple seen through a window in "Freeing"--the tone is exultant. All bright, clear colors, loose brush work and juicy surfaces, these oils come at you like a celebration of painting. They are more than that, for Pang brings her ethnic heritage with her.

On a gray fall day in Salem, Ohio, in 1916, Charles Burchfield returned to Mullins Co. after his lunch hour. Quietly, he slid a stack of sketches into a drawer. Those drawings--which he would work up into intense, fevered watercolors at night or on the weekend--were the solitary young accountant's impressions of the fields and woods of his hometown. For him, every aspect of those familiar acres had its own vivid, seasonal personality.

In a riveting 1936 picture of Vivien Leigh, British portrait photographer Madame Yevonde (1893-1975) surrounded the actress with a sparkling sea of intense orange color that crackles against her emerald green jacket. The portrait is lit so that a thin yellow line traces the border that separates these secondary colors, as if Leigh were literally electrified from within. It's an extraordinarily deft use of color as an expressive element.
