Description: RAFIEE GHANI (B. Kedah, 1962) By The Window, 1996 Signed “Rafiee Ghani” on lower right Oil on canvas 66 x 83 cm
Condition Report: Signed “Rafiee Ghani” on lower right
Notes: Having delicate and beautiful things so close, we tend to overlook it, but Rafiee Ghani is almost poetic when recollecting the sights and sounds that he has witnessed. He rearranges it in such a way that it makes things around us look even more visible than they truly are, and that makes us take a moment longer to appreciate it, as seen in this piece. As the artist has said before, “I imagine happiness and express it. I want the play of shapes to dance in the viewer’s eyes. And when it does I want to capture it. It’s like a piece of music frozen in time. People always ask what does it mean? I say don’t concern yourself with the meaning. The key to appreciate modern contemporary art is to put meaning aside. See how the paintings affect you. Does it play in your eyes or does it go deeper? It’s about the ‘mood’.” Rafiee Ghani was born in Kulim, Kedah. He studied and obtained the De Vrije Academie Voor Bildeende Kunst at The Hague, Netherlands. Thereafter, he pursued his Diploma in Fine Art from Institut Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam. He then obtained his Master of Art in Fine Prints at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1987.

1.34 The export of any Lot from Malaysia or import into any other country may require one or more export or import licenses or permits. It is the Buyer's responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import license. The denial of any export or import license will not justify the rescission or cancellation of the Sale by the Buyer or any delay by the Buyer in making payment of the full Purchase Price when due.
1.35 If the Buyer without the prior agreement of KLAS fails to make payment of the full Purchase Price, KLAS will be entitled in its absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights which KLAS and the Seller may have, to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies:
(a) to forthwith terminate and annul the Contract of Sale;
(b) to charge the Buyer, the Seller's and KLAS's Expenses;

(h) exercise a lien over any of the Buyer's property which is in KLAS's possession or in possession;
(i) to insure, remove and store the Lot either at KLAS's premises or elsewhere at the Buyer's sole risk and expense; and/or

1.36 Where KLAS decides to resell any Lot pursuant to paragraph 1.33, the Buyer and the Seller hereby consent to and authorise KLAS to arrange and carry out the resale and agree that the level of the Reserve and the Estimates relevant to such resale will be at KLAS's sole discretion. The net sale proceeds (after Expenses) will be applied in reduction of the Buyer's debt. If a resale should result in a lower price than the original hammer price obtained, KLAS and the Seller will be entitled to claim any shortfall in the Purchase price from the Buyer together with any costs incurred. If the resale results in a higher price than the original Hammer Price obtained, the surplus will be paid to the Seller. In such case, the Buyer waives any claim which the Buyer may have to the Lot and agrees that any resale price will be deemed commercially reasonable.
