Fiery hues and bright sparkle come to life in an artist’s new show.

Play­ing her role in Malaysia’s bur­geon­ing con­tem­po­rary art scene, Azl­iza Ayob has ex­hib­ited her work in Ja­pan, Spain, Swe­den, and the United King­dom. Known for her ge­nius in col­lage (her main aim is to give new mean­ing to ex­ist­ing pop­u­lar im­ages), she be­lieves col­lage art in­volves a well thought-out plan and process to pro­duce strik­ing vi­su­als and ef­fec­tive, mean­ing­ful nar­ra­tives. Con­tin­u­ously in­spired by the sim­plic­ity of life, Azl­iza en­joys be­ing able to reach out to oth­ers with her work. Her be­lief is that art is truly a way of life, not solely sub­ject to the cre­ation of art­work,

but per­haps equally im­por­tant is recog­nis­ing its pres­ence in daily af­fairs.

Don’t miss Azl­iza’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion, ‘All That Glit­ters’, which lit­er­ally re­flects a life-long fas­ci­na­tion with sparkle. Here, she bril­liantly ex­plores the con­cept be­hind the say­ing “all that glit­ters is not gold”, and reminds us how things that seem pre­cious or true may not al­ways be as they ap­pear. From Jan­uary 17 to Fe­bru­ary 12 at Wei-Ling Con­tem­po­rary, G212, Ground Floor, The Gar­dens Mall. Tel: 03-2260 1106. www.weil­ing-gallery.com
