Artist Scratches Million Dollar Paintings

Paris, France

Abstract artist John Lally has revealed 3 artworks that have taken 15 years to complete in his studio west of Paris. The Million series is a collection of works that were begun in 2005. Three painting scratched 1000000 times to reveal the figure of 1000000, with the price of 1000000 dollars.

The paintings were crafted to convey our shared greed, value, selfishness and worth. Painted in mono colour scapes that are both simplistic and complex depending on your view of the paintings. The artworks challenge us with its crudeness and poorly defined figures, there has been no effort to make this pretty on the eye.

Lally who began painting in 1991 has said, to put value on a commodity without devaluing its worth, then translate this into a series of paintings without falling into a poor cliché, was the main challenge. Most of the other concepts related to the painting came along with the passing of time. While the artist has painted other works over the past 15 years, it was only this year that he finally started to display his art publicly.

Born in 1965 to Irish/English parents Lally would spend his winters in the UK in Salisbury and summers in Ireland splitting his time between Cavan and Sligo. Since 1991, John Lally has been creating art that started out figurative, but since the end of the 1990s has been abstract, focused on scratching boards, paper and canvases is the vain hope of discovering something under the surface.

The Million Series and other artworks by John Lally can be seen at

3 rue de la porte de Vicq, 78640, FRANCE
