Painting on a Movie

Audience waits for Hung Liu performance at the San Jose Museum of Art. Backdrop - mural painted by Hung Liu.

Footage of Chinese propaganda film

Hung Liu paints over the footage but film moves forward more rapidly than she can paint.

A final flourish and performance ends. No talk following this event.

Not sure if she had planned to create this character. It is the last image on the film footage and although it is an image of a man, I think, the painting seems more female - a cadre.
