This painting was inspired by a piece of rustic metal awning the artist came across while wandering in an industrial site. She was awed by the natural cycle of growth, weathered and decay, which produces a harmonic beauty in imperfection.
Decay in nature can be seen from different points of view. On the one hand, to decay means to die or to rot. This is not a pleasant process, but a process that cannot be stopped and must take place according to the laws of nature. On the other hand, decay does not only have this negative connotation. Because decay in nature also means that something new is developing out of the dead material. Only when something dies, a new generation can arise.
Not only this artwork depicts the cycle of growth, but also the beauties in the imperfections. Although the rustic metal awning does not fit the building perfectly, it is
laden with history. A perfect imperfection is when you are bruised, you are wounded, you are bleeding and you are devastated, but you still manage to smile.

Although she grew up in an artistic environment, Kuala Lumpur-based Peisy Ting did not set out to be an artist, but a lingering affection for art and design have led her to Birmingham City University, UK where she graduated with a degree in Visual Communications in 1999. Upon her return to Malaysia, she then spent more than a decade and a half as an art director in advertising before taking a heartfelt leap to pursue her hidden passion to paint.
Having been raised in a vibrant multi-ethnic Asian culture, Peisy conflates her upbringing with a broad and worldly perspective that she seeks to capture through her contemporary abstract paintings. Sights and sounds from her daily life infuse her subconscious with the intent to blend and flow articulating visions through her brush as she translates these experiential emotions into physical forms. Her art challenges the viewers' perceptual parameters, providing them with a multilayered visual experience and establishing a connection on both an emotional as well as intellectual level.
As a self-taught artist, Peisy seeks to effectively elicit a visceral sensory experience from the observer with simple and bold compositions infused with a raw rebellious edge. Her work is in a continuous state of evolution and she looks to her past experiences as well as heritage as a preamble to her future creations.
