Stranger Than Friction
“A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.” ~ Chinese proverb
The painting represents in its abstraction the friction between things, elements, contact, thoughts or situations, etc. Friction creates changes, friction creates growth.

Lives and Works: Kuala Lumpur
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.
