Victor Estrada's "Tree of Life" bears decidedly strange fruit. In the rear gallery of the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the monumental sculpture is at once charming, horrific, funny, lively and not a little off-putting--a view of life both inventive and grim. Like his gargantuan sculpture "Baby/Baby," the two-headed creature that was among the strongest works in the Museum of Contemporary Art's notorious 1992 exhibition, "Helter Skelter: L.A.

Victor Estrada stands in the garage of his modest Sunland house, hands on hips, and stares at a chicken-wire armature mounted on a welded metal pedestal. Soon, he will cover this amorphous shape with brightly colored resin to execute one of his strangely deformed sculptures. The artist, 41, is completing a body of work for his exhibition opening Saturday at the Shoshana Wayne Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.

Valencia Coach Mike Marrujo had a difficult time pinpointing which unit played better in his team's 28-3 victory over visiting Los Amigos Thursday night--the offense or the defense. Considering that the Tigers were led by a quarterback who threw three touchdowns, a tailback with a 100-yard performance and a defense that did not allow a touchdown, you could hardly blame him.

Regarding Yvette Doss' article on L.A.'s Chicano underground ("Unbound by Tradition," Jan. 11), she may have nailed the reason why so few Latino bands have broken into the mainstream rock scene. She says, "Once a musician decides to call himself or herself a Chicano . . . he or she is generally considered too 'ethnic' or too 'Latin' for any mainstream record company." The perception that somehow being Latino makes you a "Latin band" regardless of what type of music you play is alive and well.

"I had it all wrong. I thought there would be a public outcry against the exhibition and a supportive critical response," said Paul Schimmel, curator of "Helter Skelter: L.A. Art in the 1990s," as the controversial show approached today's closing. "Instead, the public has loved it. We have had about 100,000 visitors, a phenomenal number for a contemporary art show.
