Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Aldous Hexley once wrote in his book, “there are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception”. If one sees only lights and
shapes in all beings, does it make him a bad visualiser? Being that, the abstract painting explores the different doors of cognisance.

Often, what we fear is not the unknown. Rather, it is what we think we know about the unknown. This abstract painting ‘The Known Unknown’ by the artist Peisy Ting
probes the fear and vulnerability, as we attempt to seek answers into what we may believe. However, the truth is we cannot understand without seeing the truth ultimately.

Some hope to gain insight into extraordinary states of mind and expect to see bright and colourful visionary landscapes. For example, the sphere in the middle might
become the "miracle, moment by moment, of naked existence". And this is neither agreeable nor disagreeable, but simply "is". Meaning and existence, pattern and
colour become more significant than spatial relationships and time. Furthermore, the duration is replaced by a perpetual present.

Although systematic reasoning is important, direct perception has intrinsic value too. And the man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. After all, the more you see, the less you know for sure.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Penang

Based in: 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.
