Charity Auction: Red Heart by Julie Lluch


Hi there! Today, Vintana is launching a nonprofit fundraising auction of two limited edition sculptures by revered Filipino sculptor Julie Lluch.

“Red Heart” is a cold-cast marble sculpture painted in acrylic, with dimensions of 11 x 9 x 5 inches. The heart has long been a recurring form in Lluch’s oeuvre, used in different themes and personal beliefs, including sensuality and feminist ideology. Sculpted by Lluch in 2019, it is one of an edition of four.

This “Red Heart” sculpture will come with its own certificate of authenticity, signed by Julie Lluch.

Please take the time to view the photos and videos of Julie Lluch’s “Red Heart” to better appreciate its form and beauty. We’ve made sure to present it under the best lighting conditions using top-of-the-line camera equipment in order to show its truest visual representation.

🤍 Bidding starts today at only 20,000 pesos 🤍 Please note that this is not a silent auction 🤍 To join, follow VintanaPH on Instagram 🤍 Leave a comment to bid and tag the previous bidder or message us directly and we will post your bids accordingly on the comments 🤍 This nonprofit fundraiser auction will end on March 12, 2021 at exactly 11am.

UPDATE: The charity auction of "Red Heart" was successful. It was sold to the highest bidder on March 12, 2021. This piece was sold at P26,000. All proceeds go to the artist and her cause.

One of our country’s preeminent sculptors, Julie Lluch is a self-taught sculptor with a long career working in clay, bronze, stone, and ceramics. She is also considered one of our foremost artists in the temperamental and sensual medium of terracotta.

Known also for life-sized portraits, heart cacti, and public bronze monuments, her sculptures are often autobiographical and ideological in origin, touching on the feminine, the literary, the theological, and the heroic. Most recently, Lluch’s tableau of sculptures was the highlight at the 2020 Art Fair as her homage to Juan Luna’s Spolarium and her protest to the current state of the Philippines.
