That’s right, people. Actor and talent-magnet Lucy Liu (Elementary, Charlie’s Angels, Kill Bill: Vol 1 & 2, Ally McBeal et al) is also a very talented visual artist who spends her paint creating beautiful, entangled women-loving-women art pieces (and more).
Understandably, queer Twitter went wild for it.
Liu, who currently lives and works in New York City, has said that her interest in art, “began at the age of 15, when she started experimenting with collage and photography at Stuyvesant High School in New York City.”
Liu held her first solo exhibition in New York in 1993 earning her a grant to study at Beijing Normal University, China. The trip became the subject of a body of work shown at her next one-person exhibition, Catapult, in Los Angeles in 1997.
Liu remained in Los Angeles for several years, returning to New York City in 2004.
“Everyone has a different format for how they want to reveal what they are thinking, or what they are seeing, to the audience,” she told Artsy.
“I just had to let go of the audience and just started thinking about what I wanted to see.”
Good to know we’re on the same page, Ms Liu. (Now, can we have some more pls?)
