AMIR H. FALLAH AT SHULAMIT NAZARIAN

The world is heavy these days. But art doesn’t have to be when dealing with tough subjects. Two gallery shows up in LA right now do just that. Trulee Hall’s “Plays on Foreplay” explores sexuality and gender in a bold, and animalistic way. And Amir Fallah’s “A War on Wars” is a colorful vision of armed, bloody conflict.
