        Dec. 02, 2023

        Affandi (1907 - 1990) - Bali Barong

        Est: ₱600,000 - ₱780,000

        PROVENANCE: Christie’s, Modern And Contemporary Art Online 2021, Hong Kong, April 21, 2021, Lot 55 Bali Barong signed and dated 1968 (lower left); inscribed ‘Bali Barong’ (lower right) pastel on paper 24” x 33 1/2” (61 cm x 85 cm) WRITE UPForemost Indonesian modernist Affandi depicts in this work the Barong, a Balinese mythological creature that is regarded as a protector spirit and is depicted as a red-headed lion. For the Balinese, the Barong represents all that is good and virtuous; he symbolizes justice, righteousness, health, and prosperity. There is an enduring story in Balinese mythology that tells of the battle between Barong and Rangda, the queen of demons who leads an army of witches. This conflict centers around the Balinese concept of “Rwa Bhineda,” which means “two opposites.” The Balinese believe in dualism— that everything exists as a balance between two opposing forces (good and evil, birth and death, health and sickness, black and white, constructive and destructive, etc.). For the Balinese, this is the world’s natural order. The concept of Rwa Bhineda is crucial to understanding the said battle. The Balinese people, like most cultures, believe in the eternal and relentless struggle between good and evil. The conflict between Barong and Rangda symbolizes the endless contradiction that is inherently present in the order of all things. As such, Balinese culture counts among its attributes the Barong Dance, representing Barong and Randa’s clash, which Affandi depicts in this masterpiece. In the work at hand, the Barong, accompanied by his companion monkeys, engages in a fierce war with Rangda and her army of witches. She is eerily depicted with her long, protruding tongue. Affandi’s chaotic composition and expressionistic swirls, strokes, and sinuous lines evoke the dance’s dynamism and importance in fostering the idea of Rwa Bhineda, that is, the continuous struggle against forces of evil to retain harmony and balance. Affandi first visited Bali in 1939 and had always frequented the alluring island since then. The Barong dance and its associated myth resonate not only with Affandi’s cultural consciousness but also with his patriotic sentiments. Coming from his experiences as an artist-revolutionary during the Indonesian War for independence from the Dutch Empire, the battle between Barong and Rangda encapsulates the Indonesians’ collective identity as freedom fighters. Thus, through his Bali sojourns and this work, Affandi found even greater meaning in the Indonesian motto of “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika,” which means “Unity in Diversity.” In all aspects, Barong is a ringing representation of Affandi’s almost spiritual experience with Bali, which allowed him to exalt his lived experiences, emotions, and creative instincts.

        Affandi (1907 - 1990) - Seascape

        Est: ₱6,500,000 - ₱8,450,000

        Seascape signed and dated 1984 (bottom) oil on canvas 47 1/4” x 78 3/4” (120 cm x 200 cm) PROVENANCE: Sotheby’s, Modern and Contemporary Southeast Asian Art Day Sale, Hong Kong, July 8, 2020, Lot 315 WRITE UPAAffandi is renowned for his avant-garde style, which defied conventional artistic norms. His paintings are characterized by bold, dynamic brushwork, vibrant colors, and an almost visceral, expressionist approach to portraying subjects. This unique style set him apart from many of his contemporaries and contributed to his status as a trailblazer in the Indonesian art scene. Affandi’s use of color is a hallmark of his work. He employed a wide spectrum of vibrant hues, often in nonrepresentational ways, to evoke strong emotional responses. His vivid palette adds an element of raw energy and vitality to his paintings. So much so that Affandi’s work has become synonymous with his technique called “squeezing the tube” wherein he, quite literally, squeezes the tube containers of his paint directly into a canvas, creating an impasto effect that not only creates a sense of rawness to his works, but also evokes a sense of dimensionality to a medium that is historically flat and two-dimensional. Affandi’s fearless experimentation and unique style had a profound impact on the development of modern art in Indonesia. He not only pushed the boundaries of artistic expression but also inspired subsequent generations of Indonesian artists to explore their creative potential. (Jed Daya)

        The drying of the rice, signed with initials (lower right), oil on canvas, 42,5x53 cm, , Provenance:-Collection Mr A. Levisson (his name is written in pencil on the stretcher), thence by descent to the present owner., Affandi is a renowned Indonesian painter famous for his expressive and unique style. Born in 1907 in Cirebon, Indonesia, he began his artistic journey at a young age in Bandung, West Java, as a film poster painter for cinemas. Until the end of his life, he succeeded in becoming one of the most influential Indonesian artists. Affandi is known for his ability to capture the essence of his subjects through bold brushwork and bright colors. Since his debut in Bandung, Affandi's paintings mostly feature scenes of daily life, natural landscapes, and self-portraits. He often paints with his fingers, avoiding traditional brushes, which gives his work a distinctive, raw quality.Affandi's biographers said that Affandi once exhibited at a night market in Bandung and was visited by Syafe'i Soemardja - a figure in Indonesian fine arts and architecture education. In the 1930s, Soemardja studied art at the Rijksinstituut tot Opleiding Voor Tekenleraren in Amsterdam and the Pedagogical Institute in Vienna. In 1935, after Soemardja finished his studies in Europe, he worked as a teacher in Bandung. He had just returned from Europe when he saw the Affandi exhibition. Soemardja not only praised Affandi's works but also bought them. Affandi recalled Soemardja's words, "If I buy your painting, it's not because it is good. But because soul is mature in the painting." It is not surprising that Affandi later admitted that, without Soemardja's encouragement, he would never have had a career as a painter.Affandi’s two paintings, one of which records the market atmosphere (dated 1938), and the other shows the rice harvest in a village (undated), can be said to be some of Affandi’s early paintings representing the Bandung period. The origin of this painting is from the relationship between Sjafe'i Soemardja, who had been a mediator for his colleague A. (Dolf) Levisson - who worked in the then East Indies as a teacher of physical education and German - who then bought it. Levisson's family spent the years 1940 - 1945 in the Japanese concentration camps. In late 1948 or early 1949, the Levissons returned to the Netherlands, where they lived first in Alkmaar and later in Amsterdam. Both paintings hung there in his home until Dolf Levisson's death and then came into the hands of his only son, R.A. Levisson, the husband of the current owner's mother who died last year.Aminudin TH Siregar, Indonesian art historian

Affandi (1907 - 1990) Indonesia http://www.affandi.org/index-en.html Affandi was born in 1907 in Cirebon, the part of West Java. No one knows the exact of his birthdate. His father is R.

        Affandi (1907 - 1990) Menyongsong Hari Yang Cerah (Sunny Day) signed and dated 1983 (lower right) oil on canvas 40" x 55" (102 cm x 140) Affandi’s Menyongsong Hari Yang Cerah (Sunny Day) is symbolic of the Indonesian modernist virtuoso’s undying homage to the radiant charm of their matahari (lit. “eye of the day”), the Indonesians’ term of endearment for their sun. By the time Affandi finished painting this work, he had already garnered an outstanding amount of local honors and international exposure, including being one of Indonesia’s representatives to the Venice (1954), São Paulo (1952, 1956), and Sydney (1973) Biennales. In 1974, Affandi was bestowed an honorary doctorate from the National University of Singapore, one of the world’s leading institutions for higher education. Affandi received the “Bintang Jasa Utama” in 1978 from the Indonesian government for his artistic contributions to the Indonesian Revolution. Menyongsong Hari Yang Cerah (Sunny Day) (trans. “Welcoming A Bright Day”) exhibits Affandi’s expressionist flair. The revered artist first ventured into expressionism in the late 1940s and would never abandon it for his photographic realism in the early stages of his career, giving more importance to emotional mastery rather than technical prowess. The sun, a recurring icon in Affandi’s art, possesses an all encompassing power and radiance, symbolizing its significance as the giver and sustainer of life. The lush flora seemingly rises in adoration and homage to the sun, welcoming the arrival of a new day and the restoration and renewal of one’s sense of hope and strength. It is a likely allusion to the Indonesian national motto, “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika,” which means “Unity in Diversity,” symbolizing Indonesia’s identity as an ethnically diverse nation. The swirling strokes, which manifest Affandi’s unbridled gush of emotions, expressive resonance, and solid creative impulses, epitomize his avant garde practice of squeezing paint onto his thumb and then spreading it throughout the canvas. In the TIME magazine issue dated January 12, 1953, Affandi’s painting technique is described as follows: “Affandi never learned to use a palette, dislikes brushes. Instead, he squeezes paint onto his thumb, then smears it around the canvas. He will often spend a week studying a subject, but the actual painting seldom takes longer than 90 furious minutes. ‘After about an hour,’ he says, ‘I usually feel my emotions declining. It’s better to stop then. The painting is finished.’” The vibrant intensity of Affandi’s colors engenders myriad expressions that show the artist’s emotional sensibilities. He possesses a creative eye so well adjusted to a kind of naturalism that underscores essence rather than the rigorousness in minute details. Thus, Affandi’s work not only provides authenticity of character but transcends the boundaries of the physical and exalted right into the spiritual. Affandi was a self-taught artist, learning from reading copies of Studio, a London-based art magazine, and seeing reproductions of paintings by numerous European masters, such as Francisco Goya, Edvard Munch, Pieter Breughel, and Sandro Botticelli. Affandi would become the foremost champion of Indonesian modernism, together with Sindudarsono Sudjojono, the “Father of Indonesian Modern Art.” They led Indonesia’s transition from the conservative style of the Mooi Indie (Beautiful Indies) to the modern art of the Impressionist/Expressionist influenced painters who revolutionized Indonesia’s art landscape by producing works depicting the people’s realities under a then- newly independent nation. Affandi also participated in the Indonesian National Revolution against the Dutch colonists, creating posters that awakened the sense of nationalism in his fellow countrymen. (Adrian Maranan)

        Est: ₱5,000,000 - ₱6,500,000

        Blooming Sunflowers signed and dated 1980 (upper left) oil on canvas 45" x 55" (114 cm x 140 cm) PROVENANCE Private Collection, Indonesia Affandi is Indonesia’s most cherished modernist. He is the epitome of Southeast Asian Expressionism in the mid-20th century. He was born in 1907 in Cirebon, West Java. His father, R. Koesoema, a surveyor at a local sugar factory, wanted him to be a doctor. But even at an early age, Affandi began showing his passion for the arts in the most not uncommon way for a child—drawing. Affandi first worked as a teacher, housepainter, ticket collector at a local movie theater, and painter of movie ads in the mid-1930s. He would eventually pursue painting as a profession, emerging as a self-taught artist with no prior formal art schooling; he learned from reading copies of Studio, a London-based art magazine, and seeing reproductions of paintings by numerous European masters. Affandi lived at the time of Indonesian art’s transition from the traditionalist Mooi Indie (Beautiful Indies), which dominated during the first decades of the 20th century, to the Impressionist/Expressionist-influenced artists who rejected the romanticism of the Mooie Indie and espoused a modernist, more realistic, and expressive depiction of their country that reflects its realities and everyday activities. This nationalist, avant-garde movement, which sprang in the aftermath of Indonesian independence from the Dutch, was led by Sindudarsono Sudjojono, the Father of Indonesian Modern Art, and Affandi (he was active in the Indonesian Revolution, painting works that encouraged his countrymen to take up arms against the Dutch). Affandi’s earliest works are characterized by their photographic realism until he transitioned to an expressionist language with imprints of impressionism in the 1950s. This transition was engendered by Affandi joining the Kelompok Lima Bandung (The Bandung Group of Five), composed of him (the group’s chairman), Hendra Gunawan, Barli Sasmitawinata, Sudarso, and Wahdi Sumanta. They spurred the development of modernism in Indonesia and are thus highly regarded as the “Five Maestros of Modern Indonesian Art.” This quintessential 1980 work, Blooming Sunflowers, represents Affandi’s unorthodox technique from the 1950s until his death in 1990: painting directly from the tube. Affandi discovered this technique one day while completing a painting; his brush suddenly broke in two. Worrying about interrupting the splurge of his creative juices, Affandi had to improvise by squeezing the paint from the tube directly into the canvas, then using the back of his hand to produce the curvy lines. In the TIME magazine issue dated January 12, 1953, Affandi’s painting technique is described as follows: “Affandi never learned to use a palette, dislikes brushes. Instead, he squeezes paint onto his thumb, then smears it around the canvas. He will often spend a week studying a subject, but the actual painting seldom takes longer than 90 furious minutes. ‘After about an hour,’ he says, ‘I usually feel my emotions declining. It’s better to stop then. The painting is finished.’” Blooming Sunflowers depicts a field of sunflowers clustered together so closely as if in an act of solidarity and harmony, evoking Indonesia’s identity as a collectivist society. The sun, a recurring motif in Affandi’s art, with its visible spikes of radiance that seemingly penetrate the flowers, symbolize its vital role in sustaining and nourishing life. The composition possesses the compelling intensity of dynamic strokes that capture the artist’s creative instincts, authentic rawness, and free-flowing radiant energy. By employing non-naturalistic colors, an expressionist attribute, Affandi effectively engenders and then exalts the gush of unbridled emotions. The French painter and art critic Jean Couteau, as cited by the book Affandi (Volume II), notes that “Affandi has a unique approach to painting flowers. He always draws them on the spot where they are growing rather than in a vase. The yellow of the sunflowers looks vibrant... Affandi painted his love for yellow and the sunflower as well, which reminds him of the sun, the source of human life.” Affandi created over 2,000 paintings in his lifetime, including cement and clay sculptures. He was a well- traveled artist who had the opportunity to represent his country in Sao Paulo (1952, 1956), Venice (1956), and Sydney Biennales (1973). In his prime, Affandi mounted exhibitions in major European, North American, and Asian cities. In 1957, the US government awarded him a scholarship to study art education. He was eventually appointed a visiting professor at the Ohio State University’s Art Department in 1962. Affandi was a 1974 recipient of an honorary doctorate from the National University of Singapore, one of the world’s most prestigious academic institutions. Upon his death in 1990, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., mounted a posthumous exhibition in honor of his profound contributions to Indonesian modern art. Affandi’s remains lie in state at his museum complex in Yogyakarta, as he wished that his beloved family and adored works may always surround him. (A.M.)
