Peisy Ting’s ongoing solo art exhibition attempts to capture human emotions in a world overwhelmed by the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown through abstract forms and colours.

Five of her works – When Heaven Burns, Ghost Of Time, Shadow Of Dusk, Destructed Reality, and Destructed Dream – “play” with dark colours such as a mixture of black, blue and orange to reflect pain, regret anxiety and loss due to the pandemic.
