YUTA : EARTHWORKS BY JULIE LLUCH, A RETROSPECTIVE


YUTA : EARTHWORKS BY JULIE LLUCH, A RETROSPECTIVE
October – December 2008

Yuta: Earthworks by Julie Lluch, an initiative of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Galleria Duemila, celebrates sculptor Julie Lluch's artistic career spanning thirty years. Yuta is a Visayan word for clay. The exhibit will bring together works from private and institutional collections as well as those from the artist's personal collection.

One of the country's foremost exponents of terracotta sculpture, Julie Lluch finds perfect expression in the indigenous clay, which she refers to as the most sensuous and pleasurable medium. A philosophy graduate of the University of Sto. Tomas, Lluch's strong feminist stance helped open the national women's movement in the area of arts and culture and co-founded women's groups such Katipunan ng Kababaihan para sa Kalayaan (KALAYAAN) and KASIBULAN, which she co-founded in 1990. Her works such as Philippine Gothic, Cutting Onions Always Makes Me Cry, Still Life with Cezanne's Apple's on Kiri's 6th Birthday and Picasso y Yo, all raise concern about women's roles in society. Her works also pay homage to stalwarts of Western Modern Art, as well as Filipino literary artists and art patrons. Her life-size figures - Filipina 1898 and Maranao Women—uphold the role of women in the revolution, whether in the past or at present. Lluch also did monuments in bronze of Gen. Carlos P. Romulo, Arsenio Lacson, Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos, Cayetano Arellano and Pres. Manuel Quezon.

Julie Lluch has joined prestigious exhibitions abroad at the First Asia-Pacific Triennial in Brisbane, Australia; the Third Asian Art Show in Fukuoka, Japan; Asian Modernism in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Tokyo; Clay and Fire International Clay Sculpture Exhibition in Korea and Federation of Asian and Latin American Countries show in Manila.

For her excellent works in the field of Philippine sculpture, Lluch was awarded the CCP Thirteen Artists Award (1990), Iligan City's Outstanding Citizenship in Art (1992); Quezon City's Most Outstanding Woman Artist (1995), and the Sining at Kalinangan Award given by the City of Manila (1997).

Yuta is supported by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Asian Tigers Lane Moving and Storage, Autozentrum BMW, Epson, St. Paul's de Chartres, Carlos P. Romulo Foundation, Bench, BPI Asset Management and Baileys.

Gallery hours are from 10 am to 6 pm daily except Mondays and holidays. For more information, please call the CCP Visual Arts and Museo Division at 8321125, local 1504/1505 or visit http://viewovermyga te.blogspot.com/
