Irene Chou is a key figure in the New Ink Painting Movement in the 1960s-1980s. Her works integrate the art and philosophy of the East and the West, and that of the past and the present, transcending through space and time. She explored, through her ink and colour paintings, the inner workings of the mind and its relationship with the mysteries of the universe.
This exhibition features Chou’s paintings after her stroke in 1991 and works before her passing in 2011. During this period, confined and isolated in her physical body, her mind ironically became freer. Free to perceive beyond bounded rationalities, free to conceive different artistic expressions, free to pour out what is within her heart. Her art took a more introspective turn to the metaphysical contemplations of life and the universe – the art of her inner world. Also, during this period, many of her major works were being collected and displayed for example, at ADC Building (Brisbane), Menara Standard Chartered (Kuala Lumpur), Biopolis (Jurong Town Corporation, Singapore) and Keppel Bay Tower (Keppel Land, Singapore).
