Talks End of Time

"End of Time" is a quartet written by the French composer Messiah in the Nazi German concentration camp for the violin, clarinet, cello and piano - the only four instruments at the time. This song depicts the human soul and the desperate confrontation and the expectation of miracles. Its experience of time at different latitudes is also of interest to Hu Liu in life and painting. For Hu Liu, daily life, the scenery outside the window, the changing time in the studio, the exhibition and the encounter with people are the ways to reveal their own time; while using black pencil to smear on paper, it is like jumping into the waves and grass. The world of bamboo forest or starry sky is a common adventure of body and spirit. In this conversation, Hu Liu will, in the company of commentator Lin Biao, review the various latitudes she has experienced through life and painting in recent years, and share with the audience what she has experienced on the canvas.
