About This Workshop
Influenced by the modern ink master Lui Shou Kwan, Irene Chou incorporated Western Abstract Expressionism in her ink paintings. She liked to experiment on various techniques. By referencing lines in Chinese ink painting and calligraphy, Chou pursues philosophy and artistic conception in her paintings. The lines not only produce rhythm and movement, but also reflect the inner-self of Chou. In this workshop, the instructor will teach to explore one’s emotion, then using various style of lines to express them on rice paper.

About Open Studio
The Hong Kong Jockey Club presents A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou as the third instalment in its “20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series.” Irene Chou is one of the most inventive artists at the forefront of Hong Kong’s New Ink Art Movement. Her visual language starkly different to other ink artists. Chou was remarkable for paving new possibilities in Chinese ink painting through a highly original abstract visual language, and daring in material experimentation with ink and paper.

Sunday Open Studio Series invites visitors to be inspired by the exhibition and create their own artwork in response to the works. Open Studio will run on four Sundays during the exhibition period, with each workshop dedicated to different themes. Basic art materials will be supplied and educators will be present to provide assistance. Participants are welcome to submit their finished artworks to the Joy of Art: Irene Chou Response Show Art Open-call.
