Literature:

In an 1982 interview, Affandi described how he had recently chanced upon a grove of “suffering bamboo”, which was experiencing a long dry spell with little rainfall. Affandi was in the midst of searching for a subject for a painting – he was so moved by the suffering of the bamboo that he decided to give it a place in his oeuvre.

This anecdote may sound eccentric, but the resilient bamboo is in fact a plant of great economic importance in Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries. The artist himself lived in a bamboo cottage in Yogyakarta. Commonly drawn as upright stalks in Chinese paintings, here it is illustrated with Affandi’s signature exuberance of squiggles and vitalized brushstrokes. The tinge of yellow on the bamboo adds to its withered aspect under the strong sun, a dominant motif in Affandi’s paintings.

在 1982 年的一次採訪中,阿凡迪描述了他近日偶然發現了一個“遭受苦難的竹子”,那時遇見的小竹林正在經歷長時間的干旱天氣。而阿凡迪正在尋找下一幅作畫的主題,初遇眼前的一切,他驀然地被竹子正在經歷的苦難所感動,於是創作了“受苦的竹子”。

聽聞這樣荒怪不經的逸事,雖然古怪,但細想這高節的竹子其實是印尼和東南亞最具經濟價值的植物。阿凡迪在日惹的住家高腳竹屋,也是利用竹子製成的。在中國傳統水墨畫題材中,竹子都是彰顯氣節,竹身挺直不彎的,而在阿凡迪這張畫中,竹枝以他標誌性的蜿蜒指畫呈現,更顯竹子的生命力。在強烈的陽光下,竹葉上附加的黃色暗示了它的枯萎感,也正是藝術家想表達生命之源的重要符號。
