I had the please of meeting Lädy Millard. She described herself as an artist and a movement. Her passion and zeal is electrifiying and a great testimony to other artists….. From her empirical experiences, Lädy Millard “appropriates” common iconography to not only claim her power, but also to reference the pervasive force of its imagery. As a social commentator and street anthropologist, Lädy Millard incorporates the environment to manipulate her audience’s view of their reality. Lädy changes our perspective on the definition of “Lädy” itself, her total motivation is to empower women all over the globe and accentuate their inner and outer beauty.
Lädy Millard has been spreading her street anthropology since 2001 and in recent years has displayed work throughout the streets of New York City as well as globally. Although trained in different schools in New York City including the Art Students League, The High School of Art and Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lädy refers to herself as an untrained artist because of her social experiences while attending school.
“LUXURY” (A demise of culture and class), is a display of her great work. Lädy Millard challenges the viewer’s experiences as a silent reflection of terrorism equating to luxury and “The decay of today’s cultural values.” Selected works include 2 dimensional pieces as well as a digital short shown in an ongoing loop.
