Mirages of Ink comprises of three different bodies of work. Being true to who and where she is, Quek creates mundane images of people in Singapore such as those found on the trains and in the hawker centres. Through them, she demonstrates how ink painting is still relevant today.
A revisit on the subject of lotus creates a refreshing new essay on the lotus pond – a different take after more than a decade. Quek also ventures into collages with her own ink pieces as well as with mixed media. This platform of play renders great freedom of expression for the artist. The liberalization of ink into new dimensions offers a cocktail of possibilities with the traditional Chinese ink medium.
