Adopt a Bee, save the Drones.

31 May

Save the bees!It seems Lala Drona is inviting her Drones to protect another type of drone: Bee drones.  Since the disappearances of these tiny creatures world-wide, countries such as France and Germany have decided to ban pesticides that have been implicated in the death of bees.  Since this ban, the disappearances have stopped and bees seem to be thriving in their habitats.

Some species of bees have grown up to 40 times their size says Johanne Matien, a French apiologist.  “They are getting bigger and bigger.  The bees have gone from flying rats to flying cats in just one year!”  raising awarenessDespite this anomaly, there seems to be minimal danger in the rapid bee growth.  “The bees are rather pacifists and will not attack unless threatened,” Johanne explains.  There has only been one human death since the rapid bee growth and when put to trial, was ruled out an accident.

The only real problem has been the amount of injured or sick bees abandoned by their hive.  Every weekend in the Jardin des Plantes, the entomology department from the University of Paris sets up stands that put rescued bees up for adoption.  Lala Drona was spotted at one of these tents last weekend, interested in adopting a bee.  Lala asked many questions and posed for photos, however, witnesses did not catch her actually adopting a bee. photo op.

Some say Lala made an appearance at the adoption tent as a publicity stunt in order to improve her image.  Others say this queen bee has always been concerned about her drones, whether they are human, bee or machine and has depicted these ideas in images.  Whatever intentions she may have, one thing is true.  Lala is raising long-due awareness about a crucial change in our environment.

Preview before official release

22 May

Lala Drona releases a preview before the finishing touches on her newest piece.  The piece discovered in the video “Lala in La-la Land” did in fact have a connection to her Sexe Sans Sex series.  Lala, after revisiting some of her old art work, decides to reanimate an old idea by juxtaposing text with art.  Below you will find the song lyrics “My Neck, My Back” by KHIA superimposed on the image of a baby-doll.

Lala makes a buck off a blast from the past

18 May

Lala makes a quick buckLala Drona reported that while in Colorado she would not be participating in any gallery showings of her work.  However, Drones were both pleasantly surprised and disappointed to see a spontaneous private show…in the form of

a garage sale.

ArtsaleIn front of what we believe to be her family home, passer-byes found a blast from the past.  Lala exhibited works which she described as B.L., or Before Lala (works she did as a kid). Here she exhibited her first ever acrylic painting The Ant, completed at the age of fourteen years old.

Lala's work displayed on the driveway.

Other works included drawings from her first ever series of portraits which she completed at the age of fifteen.  The idea for the series was quite simple, as it was the first time Lala blended text with visual art. (Examples below.)

 

It seems critics have very mixed reviews, some applauding the artist’s humility in displaying her art in front of her home and revisiting her pre-Lala years.  Others have commented that the display is yet another insult to galleries which display and sell Lala’s pieces, that she is giving the finger to the elitist types that buy her art at extravagant prices.  Whether one story is truer than the other, one thing is certain.  Through this display, she has given us a more complete picture of her development as an artist, and in turn, more puzzle pieces to discover who Lala Drona is.
