At least thats the thesis behind Microwave Mascara, the new collection of artwork by Australias Georges LeBar. Within these oil paintings opulence abounds, transforming cathedrals into plush nightclubs, complete with chandeliers and pole dancers. Think of it as ´80s greed with a high-speed Internet connection. All that is sacred is lavishly debauched and spread across canvas with rich, sumptuous colors. Its exciting. Its taboo. Its opening Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hollywood Art and Culture Center (1650 Harrison St., Hollywood). Tickets cost $6 for non-members.
