About the Event

Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea is pleased to present Heaven Is Now, a two-man exhibition by Lala Gallardo and Jack Mernin at the Altro Mondo Gallery at the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, (3rd Floor, The Picasso Boutique Serviced  Residences. LP Leviste Street, Salcedo Village,  Makati City).


These two artists gather to execute their works that present an emotional whirlwind of agony and solace. The term heaven being described in this context is the feeling of utmost happiness and a sense of blessed peace. According to Lala Gallardo, “… the pieces are about dealing with issues of emotional pain and my desire to heal from that pain. My goal is to cultivate a peaceful mind that is fully present.”

Lala Gallardo is a  Filipino artist who is a BA Arts History graduate from the University Of The Philippines,Diliman. Inspired mainly by film and photography, Lala's art serves as her confessional, where she confronts her insecurities and doubts.  A constant subject matter is women at their most raw and vulnerable. Subdued colors and an air of repression and contemplation permeate her works.
