Four Points By Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown Lets You Immerse In Malaysian Art And Culture

With the welcome news of leisure stays allowed for fully vaccinated individuals within the same state, there’s good reason for those with an appreciation of art to choose Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown for their upcoming staycation. The hotel, which has maintained a year-long collaborative project called Moving Art Gallery with Alice Chang of Lai Lai Art, is now showing the works of a trio of artists at its Level 7 lobby, as part of a series of events centred on Malaysia Day.

The life-sized The 3 Graces Of Malaysia which welcomes visitors is Chang’s narrative of the role of women in nation-building, with her three mosaic sculptures composed of salvaged ceramics and porcelain. Chang depicts these women to be the representation of harmony and cultural diversity, all pregnant to symbolise the courage and power that these women command in perpetuating legacy and nurturing the country’s next generation. Also on display is Chang’s Legacy Series, a collection of dainty gift boxes made of mosaics. “Navigating though the wave of emotions during this pandemic has brought our community closer together and tested our resilience in more ways than one. My idea was to present gifts to everybody,” Chang says of this collection of works.

At this lobby showcase, Chang’s close collaborator and architect Dato’ Ar Luciano Mirri’s work is also on display, entitled Colour, Light and Hope 2021. His canvas collection of contemplative geometric abstraction, which morphs into moody scenes, provides plenty of visual interest and emotive appeal.

Rounding off this trio of artists is the talented Janet Lee who showcases her Hibiscus series, a poignant and joyful tribute to Malaysia’s national flower. Lee, who is both afflicted with epilepsy and learning difficulties, serves up her interpretation of flowers and spaces conceived by her magical imagination, inspired by her own fascination for flowers, life experiences and environment. All of the artworks exhibited here are for sale with earnings going to causes supporting children and other beneficiaries.
