Acrylic to ink: Lala quits on the art world

15 Dec

Lala writes bookLala Drona’s latest art show was cancelled due to “pornographic material.” Lala Drona was scheduled to show her series “Sexe sans Sex” at local Parisian gallery in Momartre, when the gallery owner sent her away after taking just one look at the risqué series. Lala told Paris Paint Magazine that her agent had already sent the material for review by the gallery months ago, and it seemed as if everything was fine. There must have been some sort of confusion, because not 20 minutes after Lala’s arrival, she was seen leaving the gallery with her assistant David, canvases in hand.

“Minuit” from series Sexe sans Sex.

The owner of the gallery claimed he was unaware of the painting’s pornographic nature. He finished with, “I myself love the paintings, but my clientele wouldn’t be very happy if they came in with their families and saw [the paintings].”

 

In response to the situation, Lala Drona stated, “The series is Sex without sex. There is no pornography in these images. That’s exactly the point of the series…” She finished the statement by saying that her and the gallery were simply not a good fit, and would probably never work with them again due to artistic differences.

Lala transports canvases            For the moment, Lala Drona does not have additional gallery showings on the horizon. However, the artist told Paris Paint Magazine that she’s taking a step back from the art world in order to write her book about the Lala World. “I’ve already finished the outline and am currently writing the second chapter.” Based on a Fact wonders if the sudden step back from the art world is due to the recent gallery rejection, however Lala Drona assures us that she will continue to paint. “People forget that I’m a fiction writer just as much as I am an artist.  Politics and career pressures have kept me in the gallery sphere since arriving to Paris.  Painting is half of my heart, and of course I will not abandon it, but I’m ready to retreat into my writing again.”

As far as the book goes, Lala Drona is not revealing much about the content, but she has said that she’s writing some sort of origin story. Fans everywhere are on the edge of their seats waiting for the highly anticipated book.   Likewise, Based on a Fact is excited to learn more about the secret life of Lala Drona.
