Description: As the title Guard implies, this imposing statue morphs from the ancient protector of yore, a qilin (always in pair) perhaps or a Ganesha talisman, or more appropriately to the context and structure of this Guard here studded with armour of polished and reforged metal scraps, some kind of medieval knight, albeit with a more futuristic surrealistic touch. The metals are meticulously welded to create this gigantic guard, providing a sense of secure yet instilling fear (the clown mask on hand) at the same time. We hide behind many masks, and in doing so, trapped ourselves in fear of being found out. How will our protector be, in this 21st Century, in an Era of the Disbelievers and the Internet Generation? Can the weaponry of spanner, axe and shield suffice in safeguarding our lives, our limbs? Or is this just a modern scarecrow, that serves little practical purpose, not even as decoration? We are living in restless times when the only certainty is uncertainty.Suhaidi Razi graduated with a BFA in 1999 and MFA in 2005 at UiTM Shah Alam. He has won several prizes but the major one is the Nokia Art Award in 2002. He also won the Major Award in the Pahang painting competition (2003), Johor Historical Building (2004) and numerous Minor Awards, Grand Prize in Life-drawing (Pesta Anggerik, Galeri Shah Alam, 2004), Traditional Malay House Design (Malacca, 2006), Historical Painting Johor (2008), Nature Terengganu (2008), Historical Terengganu (2009). His first solos Rainforest and A Sanctuary, were held at the Batang Ai Longhouse Resort and KL Hilton respectively in 1997. Then came Passage at NN Gallery in 2011, Dream Pipes at Galeri Chandan in 2012, Imagine The Imagination at White Box Publika in 2013, and Paradox (organised by Curate Henry Butcher) at Galeri Prima in 2017. He was selected for a solo show booth in Art Expo Malaysia Plus (2017).In November 2016 Henry Butcher Art Auction, his horse sculpture of size 74cm x 44cm x 18cm was sold for RM 9,520.
