This is the catalogue of Irene Chou’s solo exhibition at Hanart 2 Gallery in 1989. To give an overview of Chou’s artistic development in the 80s, Chang Tsong-zung wrote, ‘In recent years Irene Chou’s paintings have become progressively freer and bolder. Sweeping brush strokes traverse the landscapes, as though she has returned to the beginning of brush painting where the single stroke opens up an entire universe. Starting from the earth-shaking brush mark, she builds her world, laboriously and painstakingly, brick upon brick, until an entire vision is complete. With her personal stylistic idioms she has opened up new horizons for ink painting and re-affirmed the role of the artist as the creator of the world.’ A biography of the artist is included in the present catalogue.

本書是周綠雲於1989年在香港漢雅軒舉辦個展的圖錄。張頌仁對周綠雲在八十年代的創作有以下的總結:「從七十年代到今天的二十年間,周綠雲的藝術創出了香港水墨畫界最深邃和最富於時代心靈氣息的作品。近年的新作比以前更豁達,豪邁的筆迹縱橫畫面。從繁雜吃力的結構,周綠雲回歸到國畫最原始的筆劃,以驚天動地的筆勢開天闢地,之後再加以苦心經營她那個無名大力的心宇宙。她已能隨心地游刃於一個完全屬於自己的天地,參悟創世的喜悅。」本圖錄亦載有周綠雲的簡歷。
