At 1301PE, German artist Jan Albers uses industrial materials - chiefly polystyrene, the stuff of packing peanuts - to create textured wall pieces that evoke dramatic, craggy landscapes or tortured, ravaged flesh. Often colored an unnatural shade of magenta or a sickly beige, these chaotic surfaces are contained in paradoxically clean geometric shapes encased, Petri dish-like, in clear Plexiglas. At first they seem a bit corporate, the kind of visually engaging but innocuous abstraction that adorns bank lobbies.

We wanted to drive our own car in Europe, so we bought a car through Europe Auto Travels. Included in the purchase price was a personalized guidebook. This book gave exact routing and suggested sights for our entire five-week trip. It's Europe Auto Travels, 9367 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills 90210. The trip was wonderful and we did not make wrong turns. SKIP and BEA KEITH Pacific Palisades
