Irene Chou: Inflame my heart
One of a few active female artists in Hong Kong during the 1960s and 70s, Irene Chou was regarded as one of the most innovative artists of New Ink Painting.
Her vibrant and expressive works combine elements of traditional Chinese ink painting – calligraphy and contemporary abstract painting, and at the age of 81, her works continue to display a spirit of experimentation.
