LUCY LIU PRETTY AS A PICTURE AT NEW YORK ART EXHIBITION

20 SEPTEMBER 2006

To movie fans she is best known as the high-kicking star of films like Kill Bill and Charlie's Angels. Tinseltown favourite Lucy Liu showed a more creative side to her persona when she stepped out to launch an exhibition of her artwork in New York, however.

The diminutive bombshell, who is an expert in the Indonesian combat sport of Kali-Eskkrima-Silat, proved her talents were not limited to arts of the martial variety when she arrived for the event with Lucky Number Slevin co-star Bruce Willis. The actress is in fact a rather accomplished painter and photographer, having previously exhibited in both New York and California.

Blockbuster movies are the performer's bread and butter, but she also works as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations and it was for this reason that she decided to put on the show. Proceeds from an auction of her selected works will go to the organisation's children's fund.

The 38-year-old, looking pretty as a picture in a strapless white gown when she arrived for the Ritz-Carlton event, confessed to feeling a little strange about the idea of someone else owning her work. "It is weird to think that someone that you don't know might have your artwork in their house or in their office," she said.
