About the Art
The Guns, Roses & Adiré collection started off with the painting you see here titled Lola, Lola. Modé wanted to explore the meanings of her tribe’s (Yoruba) tie & dye patterns and techniques. In the background, in the frequently used natural indigo colour, we see one of the most popular adiré patterns, which is called “Talking Drums".
The focus of the painting is on the young lady, Lola. She stares at the viewer with her lips slightly apart, giving a sultry invitation to stare at her beauty. Although her hair is wild and unnatural, Lola is confident and shows pride. Lola wears coral beads, which are precious stones with special status in the Yoruba culture. The flowers painted are red roses and calla lilies. Calla lilies are one of Nigeria's local flowers. Modé added guns to the painting to create a harsh figurative contrast to the delicacy of the flowers.
