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.

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.
