"Here are a couple shows I thought especially good on my recent (limited) rounds. One was “Kirsten Dierup: Remote View” (through Jan. 2) at De Boer Gallery, south of downtown LA. Deirup’s paintings of various women’s shoes in Surrealistic landscapes are kicky and imaginative. A lime green stiletto poses in the midst of a gnarled forest clearing in Oracle, a platform shoe sits in the soupy stew of Swamp Pump. The gallery is small but choice—be sure to ring and arrange your visit before going."
