Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
What Quebec’s Laurence Vallieres is able to do with cardboard, is simply remarkable. My middle name is Laurence, so imagine my surprise when I discovered that Laurence was female. It’s no secret that I have an affinity for primates and was immediately drawn to her gorilla sculptures. There is a complex juxtaposition between the humor of her pieces and the methodical technique used to create them.
Collectors now have a chance to own a piece of her work. Station 16 Gallery, based out of Montreal, have small, mixed media sculptures available for $250 CDN. Additionally, hand-painted cardboard cutouts will set you back $25 CDN. Station 16 also have larger pieces available, starting at $1450 CDN. You’ll have to inquire for shipping rates, but you can get 10% off of your order by signing up for their mailing list. I’m in love with ‘Monkey LV’. Thinkspace Gallery also have a piece available for purchase. ‘Ido Head’ was featured in their ‘LAX/DTW: Detroit Hustle II’ exhibition and will cost $1200 USD.
