The Art Accent gallery in Bangsar Village 2 will be hosting a solo exhibition by Malaysian contemporary artist Lau Wai Leng. The show is entitled Love and Gratitude which will be featuring the latest works of this artist who comes from Negri Sembilan.
Love & Gratitude will be the second solo exhibition by Wai Leng where the body of work will be featuring her newfound appreciation of women after having entered motherhood. It is quite a natural progression where her earlier works showed her showing the appreciation for female workers and traders when she visited a wet market in Kelantan in 1997. That was where she produced some very remarkable watercolor paintings that were seen in her market series. The series provided the platform for her to continue expanding her artwork and techniques and that will be seen in the Love & Gratitude show.
In her latest works, she experienced the changes since becoming a mother. The Diploma of Fine Art from the Central Academy of Art in Kuala Lumpur graduate now paints a more motherly approach in her works while she is still very much immersed in some countryside scenes of Kedah like the ever horizontal views of padi fields and such.
Opening Hours: Daily 10.00am to 10.00pm
