維達雅《奇花異草》1994 年作 油彩 畫布

Literature:

Haji Widayat is one of the most esteemed and influential
Javanese artists of the 20th Century, and was from the pioneer
batch of Akademi Seni Rupa Indonesia (Indonesian Academy
of Fine Arts - ASRI) of the 1950s. He is renowned for pioneering
the artistic stylistic movement known as “magical-decorative”.
Widayat paints mostly jungles, exotic animals and primitive life
that follows the Manifesto of naïve art, drawing inspiration from
folklore mythology and religious literature. His early influences
largely derived from folktales told by his mother during his
childhood. A key figure in the development of expressionist art
movement in Indonesia, Widayat’s work seamlessly merges
heavy stylisation techniques with modernist concepts of abstract
expressionism.


The subject of Flora and Fauna is a favourite motif of the artist.
The strokes of his brushwork are distinctively flat and repetitive
with a hint of abstraction. ‘Flora and Fauna’ exemplifies the
artists’ oeuvre through the recurring geometric shapes in the
representation of natural elements such as earth, water and air.
Animals of the jungle emerge in pairs and groups, surfacing in
bright contrasting colours amongst abstract vegetations and
water elements in this painting. Widayat exemplifies the rich
variety and diversity of the world of flora and fauna through the
rhythmic composition his brushstrokes and colour choice. The
heavily stylised painting evokes a magical quality to the work as
opposed to echoing a faithful depiction of reality.

維達雅是20世纪最受尊敬和最具影响力的爪哇艺术家之一,来自
20世纪50年代的Akademi Seni Rupa Indonesia(印度尼西亚美
术学院 - ASRI)的第一批學生。他开创了被称为“神奇装饰”的
艺术风格运动而闻名。 維達雅主要绘制丛林,异国情调的动物和
原始生活,遵循天真的艺术宣言,从民间传说神话和宗教文学中
汲取灵感。他早期的藝術風格很大程度上源于他母亲在童年时期
讲述的民间故事。作为印度尼西亚表现主义艺术运动发展的关键
人物,維達雅的作品将沉重的程式化技巧与抽象表现主义的现代
化概念无缝融合。


植物和动物群的主题是維達雅最喜欢的主题。他的笔触明显平
坦,有重复性,带有一丝抽象色彩。 《植物群和动物群》通过在
地球,水和空气等自然元素的表现形式中反复出现的几何形状,
体现了艺术家的全部作品。丛林中的动物以成对和群体的形式出
现,在这幅画中抽象植物和水元素之间形成鲜明对比的色彩。 維
達雅通过他的笔触和色彩節奏感构成,体现了动植物世界的丰富
多样性和多样性。大量风格化的绘画唤起了作品的神奇品质,而
不是回应对现实的忠实描绘。
