John Millei and Scott Grieger are painters who attempt to demystify artworks while becoming caught up in propagating the myths they attempt to explode. In Millei's case, the grandiloquent Abstract Expressionist statement--with its heroic verbosity of huge scale, earth-colored impasto and kinetic drips--is undermined by an equal attention to geometric structure. Messy color fields are either anchored by inset rectangles and circles, or superimposed with fragments of grids.

Scott Grieger is known as an "artist's artist." Asked about this, the painter looks slightly sheepish but acknowledges, "I love that. Artists usually get it; they see what I'm doing." The rest of us can get a chance to see what Grieger is doing in his current exhibition, drolly titled "Let Freedumb Ring," at Patricia Faure Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. Stylistically varied, his art has one thematic consistency--"skepticism about orthodoxies," he quips.

Alexis Smith does not consider herself a furniture collector--though she does collect picture frames for her collages. But, for two years, she and her husband, artist Scott Grieger, flirted with buying an Eames chair, debating whether to go old or new. Recently, in honor of her 50th birthday, the couple bought two chairs from manufacturer Herman Miller. For her, a lipstick-red Eames "potato chip" chair. "The only modern thing in the house," Smith says.

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater has become a thriving micro-industry in the art world. As anti-artists of all types have made careers out of dismissing every style, idea and technique they can get their hands on, much art seems to be increasingly driven by teenage disdain and insistent juvenile delinquency. In this hyper-critical environment, it's refreshing to come across Scott Grieger's hilarious exhibition at Patricia Faure Gallery. The L.A.

We the undersigned, as participants in and supporters of the Los Angeles arts community, wish to register our strong objection to the William Wilson review of the show "Lari Pittman Drawings," currently at the Armand Hammer Museum ("The Decadent Decor of Pittman's 'Drawings,' " Calendar, Feb. 7). Besides being naive about contemporary art ("works on paper in various media" have been considered drawings since the onset of the 20th century, e.g.

Scott Grieger's works from 1968-73 were made 10 years too early to get the attention they deserve. His hilarious photographs, irreverent sculptures and absurd paintings also were made on the wrong side of the country to earn more than disdain and dismissal from New York's provincial art world. Adding insult to injury, a group of New York-based artists became famous in the '80s for making art based on the same ideas Grieger had explored a decade earlier.

There was a real glow around the opening of the Armory Center for the Arts in Old Town Pasadena the other evening and around the preview of the "Pasadena Armory Show 1989" curated by Noel Korten and planned by Ann Barrett for the Fellows of Contemporary Art. The Fellows is the group founded in 1975 to underwrite exhibitions by contemporary artists after the demise of the Pasadena Art Museum.

It is a first, as far as I am aware, for Counterpunch to publish a couple of angry "letters" ("Review of Drawings Draws Anger," Calendar, Feb. 26), with very little in the way of rebuttal to the published article other than what the writers perceived as a disrespectful and dismissive tone in the review ("The Decadent Decor of Pittman's 'Drawings' " by William Wilson, Calendar, Feb. 7). Perhaps by their placement in the highly visible Counterpunch section, the editors wished to highlight them as examples of a unified front, in conflict with the possibility of different evaluations of an artist's work.

Raymond Pettibon stands surrounded by ink. Drawings -- hundreds of them -- fill every surface: on the floor, against the wall and spread out on a few tables of the West Hollywood gallery Regen Projects. On this afternoon, as the artist prepares for his show that will open a few days later, it looks like a 1940s comic book has exploded. A young collector drops by. "Sweet," he says. "Your work, man, it's esoteric." And filled with words.

The artist's studio is part factory, part chapel, part Merlin's cave, reliquary and museum. Some artists say it doesn't matter where they make art. Others claim their studio is their art. Some cities preserve studios, but L.A. does not. We worship artists; we trade real estate. Sunday is the 30th annual Venice Art Walk & Auctions, when artists open their studio doors for the public to peek at sanctum sanctorums in houses, lofts and commercial buildings.
