    I find a certain irony in the instruction to “click the images above to see them larger”.

    Perhaps it should be noted that “Adele Lack” is a fictional character from Charlie Kaufman’s new film, “Synecdoche, New York”.

    In this economy, I don’t think it’s wise to cut in on the magnifying glass market.

    Piss one of those magnifying glass salesmen off and before you know it, they are using a magnifying glass to slowly burn a hole in the back of your head.

    BUNT @1, Yes, I suppose I should note that directly in the post. It’s part of the whole thing. : )

    Looks great. But I don’t find the sneak preview pictures when I follow the link, only a short article and a single image on top. Is there a bigger image gallery?

  6. David Pescovitz says:

    SEKINO @3, The clickable images are at the top of my post. I clarified.

    Adele Lack = Alex Kanevsky in miniature!

    His work can be found at

    Also should be noted that the Montalban is right around the corner from the ArcLight Hollywood one of the theaters where “Synecdoche, New York” opens this Friday. Makes for a fun post-film experience.

    Hanging them on the wall to display them seems pointless. The gallery should have had a series of microscopes so people could actually see the paintings.

    I worked at a company that made tiny LCD screens for viewfinders and projectors, so I can relate to these images pretty well – they are about the same size!

    Given the show’s genesis as part of the film’s PR campaign, I suspect the paintings are, themselves, pointless as anything other than a synecdotal gesture.
