Life Informed Art

Lala Drona (b. 1988) is a Venezuelan-American painter and videaste, born in Denver, Colorado. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado, Lala Drona has since published and exhibited her work internationally.  Most recently, her videos and paintings exploring digital spaces and the female gaze, were shown at the Cite des Arts de Paris.  Inspired by her experience of growing up with a unilateral breast agenesis, her paintings, videos, and writing explore “transitions between the virtual and the real” and “women in the digital world.”  The totality of her artwork contributes to, and exists within a fictional universe and mythology established online and then recontextualized in the physical world through paint on canvas, performance, and sculpture. 

Lala Drona is currently creating a documentary which recounts her experience growing up with a unilateral breast agenesis.  The documentary follows her through her final reconstructive surgeries in her adult life.  Topics cover “shame,” “secrets,” and the role of the human body in our everyday social interactions.

Lala Drona dealt with her secret body by creating a fictional universe from a young age, one in which she still uses today for creative inspiration http://www.basedonafact.com

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
