AsiaRooms.com - New Landscapes display to open at Kuala Lumpur's Wei Ling Gallery

July 29, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
AsiaRooms.com reports art lovers are sure to have their time in Kuala Lumpur brightened up if they visit the Wei Ling Gallery next month, which is set to host a new display from Chin Kong Yee.

Under the title "New Landscapes", the exhibition will involve four large paintings created by the artist. As the heading may suggest, these will focus on the theme of scenery, a matter which has always fascinated him.

The first chance that people staying in Kuala Lumpur hotels will get to see Kong Yee's new works comes on August 16th 2010 at the gallery, with the installation set to run until September 8th.

According to the venue, which was opened in 2002, the artist chose to consider the way in which a single painting on two canvases can be rearranged to form a scene that looks completely different.

It means that each of the pictures has two different panels, which can be slid from one side to the other to change the way it looks.

"New Landscapes shows us Chin Kong Yee's strength as an artist and his desire to continue making paintings which excite the senses," the gallery commented.

Opening hours are between 11:00 and 19:00 local time from Monday to Friday and 10:00 to 17:00 on Saturday, while Sunday viewings are by appointment only.

For more information on this event, visit the Wei Ling Gallery website or contact the venue on (+60) 3 2260 1106.
