Timeless @ Wei-Ling Contemporary

Wei-Ling Gallery celebrated it's 10th birthday with a book (to be covered in future) and this exhibition.  A most suitable greeting, as two of the gallery's long-time collaborators flank the entrance, Chin Kong Yee and Ivan Lam.  Veteran Zulkifli Yusoff's painting screams for attention in the middle, a dada-looking cassette adorned with the national flag, the Negaraku, and jelly-like rubies.  In the background, sinuous lines in different shades bring the drawing to life, imbuing a dynamic quality to the flat flags and repeating verses.

Large, impressive works by artist couple Choy Chun Wei and Yau Bee Ling fill the space, another testament of the gallery's leading position in exhibiting Malaysian contemporary art.  Distorted colour hues and busy activities in Kim Ng's 'Echo of City' complete the exhibition, a sharp juxtaposition to Chen Wei Meng's serene portrayal of the Terengganu coast.  I can only hope that the next 10 years will be just as exciting, and looking forward to seeing many more art exhibitions at the Wei-Lings'.
