David LaChapelle David LaChapelle imbues his photographs with a sense of good taste based on culture's lowest common denominator. Theirs is a beauty based on kitsch run amok. LaChapelle's photographs are a combination of surrealist celebrity and homages to Andy Warhol. Riffing on Warhol's silkscreen images of electric chairs, LaChapelle's "Electric Chair" shows pink bondage gear and white high heels strewn on the floor in a prison execution chamber. Photographs of "superstars" (Warhol's neologism), from Madonna to Angelina Jolie, line the front gallery space at Goss. The photographs are hung too tightly, with too many lining the wall. It feels as though they have been installed in a frenzy to sell as many as possible. But then again, that's in keeping with the ethos of LaChapelle's glammy work. Let's just hope it's not the only trick up this new gallery's sleeve. Through August 12 at Goss Gallery, 2512 Cedar Springs Road, 214-696-0555. Reviewed June 16. (Charissa N. Terranova)
