iPreciation will be participating in Art Basel Hong Kong 2017, presenting a solo exhibition of works by Irene Chou (b. 1924 – 2011).

Chou was a leading pioneer of the New Ink Painting Movement in Hong Kong during the 1960s, known for her unique blend of traditional Chinese ink painting together with the aesthetics of modern and abstract Western art. The works that will be presented at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017 for the solo exhibition are special and poignant – they were mostly created over a period of time after she suffered from a stroke in 1991 and before she passed on in 2011. They reflected her strong and unwavering artistic spirit in redefining the boundaries of conventional Chinese painting, even in difficult times. Her art took a more introspective turn to the metaphysical contemplations of life and the universe –  the art of her inner world. Her works are collected by the British Museum, the Chinese University Museum, the Fung Ping Shan Museum and the Hong Kong Museum of Arts, the University of Hong Kong, the City Gallery in Manila, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the National Arts Centre, the National Museum of History in Taipei, the Queensland Art Gallery, the Melbourne Raya Gallery in Australia, GIC Singapore, Jurong Town Corporation, Harbour View, Keppel Land and the Museum of Brisbane.Chou’s works have been collected by the British Museum, the Chinese University Museum,  the Hong Kong Museum of Arts, the City Gallery in Manila, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the National Museum of History in Taipei, the Queensland Art Gallery and the Melbourne Raya Gallery in Australia.
