The artists in Housebroken, at the Rena Bransten Gallery, rend domesticity limb from limb. Crisply curated by Glen Helfand (one of the original Stretcher crew) Housebroken considers the contradictions of comfort. Case in point: Casteneda/Reiman’s use of plastic skylights to suggest “rolling hills.” These pieces need to go home to subdivisions like “Cherry Orchard Village.”
