Ho sets out to explore the deepest levels of the human subconscious. The atmospheric, melancholic tones of her drawings and paintings evoke sensations of dislocation. Her works document her interest in what is lost and found. The ambivalence between the fleeting and synthesised memory becomes a trace within the landscape. 

Ho's most recent series “Night Swims Series” (2017-2022) is a project that continues her journey into the dark waters of the human psyche. The characters depicted in the paintings reflect a state of feelings including isolation, solitude, uncertainty and fear. The reflections dancing off of the dark waters surface are a symbolic description of these hidden emotions. They mirror the feelings of the characters as if they were like nocturnal animals that are only comfortable to feed and hunt in the dark.
