Now that you have plants in every corner of your home, why not go for artworks this time?
During an online press preview for the recently concluded Tercero virtual auction, Camille Lhuillier-Albani, general manager of Casa de Memoria, talked about injecting art into one’s living space, especially now that we spend most of our time at home.
“Art has been used to bring joy, inspiration, and strength, and our homes need these now more than ever,” she said.
Interior decorator Ram Bucoy, one of the guests, advised those interested to spruce up their homes with art pieces to “not hurry.”
“Interior design is something that’s never done in an instant; it’s a process. At Tercero, you’ll find a lot of affordable and small pieces that you can easily place in your home or mount on your wall. These are perfect starting pieces for your home and you can build your art collection from there,” explained Bucoy.
Some of the lots that went under the hammer during the September 26 auction were a pair of 20th-century fine prints by Spanish-Filipino artist Fernando Zobel de Ayala y Montojo, a plaster cast gladiator sculpture by Isabelo Tampinco, and a lithograph titled “The Creation of Eve” by surrealist Salvador Dali, among many others.
The auction event was held for the benefit of Santa Ana Hospital in Manila and its COVID-19 response.
