艾利·斯密特《村廟》1995 年作 亞克力 木板
款識::Arie Smit '95(左下)

Literature:

Arie Smit, whose evocations of sun-drenched scenes of Bali is well sought after, is considered a master of Indonesian art.In 1938, Smith was sent to the Netherlands East Indies (Indonesia) for military service, where he worked as a lithographer for the Dutch army's Topographical Service in Batavia (Jakarta) and made maps of the archipelago.

During his lifetime, Smit often experimented with refreshing permutations of familiar scenes of the Balinese countryside. His works evoke the use of light and colors typical in late 19th century Impressionism, but he never painted on location. He would sketch outdoors and then recreate the works back in his studio. Elements of early 20th century Fauvism also appear in his works, but his style mostly evolved in the period when he lived and worked in Bali. Smit is a master of color and composition. Repetitive elements, often simplified to their very essence, create visual rhythms. His vibrant paintings focus on the people and places of Bali with his own special "broken colors" technique, that reveals the beauty and rhythm of the Balinese culture.

艾利·斯密特以一系列陽光普照的峇里島場景畫作受追捧,被認為是印度尼西亞的藝術的大師。1938年,史密斯被派往荷屬東印度群島(現為印度尼西亞)服兵役,在那裡他擔任荷蘭軍隊在巴達維亞(現為雅加達)的地形評測的平版畫家,製作印尼群島的地形圖。

在他的一生中,斯密特經常嘗試新的構圖方式呈現巴厘島鄉村景。作品常令人聯想起19世紀晚期印象派中典型的光線和色彩的技法,但和印象派畫家不同的是斯密特的畫作都不是寫生時完成的。他會在戶外素描,然後再在他的工作室完成創作。20世紀早期野獸派畫作元素也出現過在他的作品中,但風格演變多數在他巴厘島生活和工作的時期。斯密特是色彩和構圖的大師。重複的元素,通常簡化成最極精的本質,創造不同的視覺節奏。他充滿活力的畫作以他自己獨特的“破碎色彩”技法點綴出巴厘島的風土民情,展現了當地文化中的美和地方色彩。
