Born in Shanghai in 1924, Chou received a modern education, graduating from St. John’s University in Shanghai in 1945. Leaving Shanghai to settle in Hong Kong in 1949, she embarked on a study of Chinese painting with Zhao Shaoang (1905-1998), an artist of the Lingnan School. Chou later studied under the tutelage of Lui Shou-Kwan (1919-1975), whose theories of New Ink Painting inspired her to move away from conventional Chinese styles, to experiment with different media and techniques, which led to a discovery of her own personal expression in the 1970s.
Using forceful lines derived from the stone-drum inscription of the Warring States period in China (403-221 BCE) coupled with her dense ink washes, she explored through her paintings the inner workings of the mind and its relationship to the mysteries of the universe. iPRECIATION is delighted to showcase a few of the artist’s most esoteric and highly sought after creations.
