Renowned body painter Trina Merry connects the ancient fascination with the human figure to the art of optical illusion as she uses the human body as a canvas for exploring the intriguing forms, textures, and patterns of the Getty Villa. In this daylong demonstration, observe live models being painted from head to toe, then discover site-specific interventions that transform the site as bodies morph into artworks, disappear into the architecture, and emerge from the Villa's gardens.
