Yuta: Earthworks by Julie Lluch

Victoria Herrera, as well as by the artist herself.
Julie Lluch is the foremost Filipina artist working with terracotta. A philosophy graduate from the University of Santo Tomas, she is a self-taught artist who is known for her clay portraits and works that have a strong feminist stance drawn from personal consequences. Her self-portraits are incorporated in tableaux that articulate women's roles in society.
