Literature:

“I like curves because they (represent) the feeling I get from wayang kulit puppets. If you look closely at the wayang puppets, you will see that they are very rarely made using only straight lines.. It may be old-fashioned but I love curves.”— Affandi

“我喜歡蜿蜒曲折的曲線,因為它們(代表)我從瓦扬库立(傳統皮影戲)當中啟發我靈感的感覺。仔細觀察這些皮影人偶,你會發現它們幾乎很少只使用直線製作。。可能我表達了已經過時的想法,但是我就是喜歡這樣的曲線。”—阿凡迪

Thus explained Affandi when he begun to abandon strong linear brushstrokes in the 50s and diverged his practice from realism, choosing instead to forgo brushes and directly transmit a visceral experience onto the canvas by smearing paint with his fingers, palms and wrists, resulting in a bold, riotous expression of shape, form, and colour. The scintillating and dynamic current of life is exuded by commonplace elements in his paintings – in the angular form of the straw hat in Sang Juara that belies the subject’s humble occupation as a farm worker; to the veneration of the ‘suffering bamboo’ in Pohon Bambu. It is a fitting honour then, for Affandi to be deemed as “one of the most important interpreters of people’s life and emotion” (Astri Wright, Soul, Spirit, Mountain: Preoccupation of Contemporary Indonesian Painters, Oxford University Press, 1994, p. 158).

以上所述,解答了阿凡迪在 50 年代開始逐漸放棄強烈的線條性筆法,並轉換了現實主義風格,在創作實踐中,棄了用筆刷,選擇直接通過自己的手指、手掌和手腕將顏料塗抹在畫布上,表達更大膽,自發性的形狀、形式和顏色。生命的閃爍和動態在畫中以最樸實單純的主題感染眾人—《冠軍》畫中的棱角形草帽代表了純樸的農民公人,再看看《竹林》中代表堅韌不拔精神的竹子。顯而易見,說阿凡迪是“演繹生命最重要的畫家之一“,這個美譽一點也不誇張。(阿斯特里賴特 Astri Wright,《靈魂、精神、山:當代印尼藝術家的貫注,牛津大學出版社,1994 年出版,第 158 頁)
