Artist Statement

The triptych painting highlights art forgery cases that have affected the auction industry as well as those who are in the fine art world.  The figure on the right piece portrays the mind behind the game that controls the game meanwhile the one in the middle piece is the one who instigate, speculate and propagate the misinformation which consequently received by the figure on left piece. The fish on the top signifies the bait that was given got hooked onto the recipient to devour. The face of the middle piece’s subject remains hidden to conceal his/her identity. The fan outline on top of it is a metaphor to the role of the propagator. The mastermind figure dons a pirate insignia of hook that can be seen on his right hand and his other eye remains hidden from sight suggesting the antagonistic quality of the subject.

Nik M Shazmie portrayed the cycle of auction houses system which allegedly exercises bad business habit.
