Catalogue Note

"...as his expressions gradually took shape, the images in his paintings emerge side by side with pure visual components. The images and the visual components – the strokes, the lines, the hand-scratches, the colours and the directly-applied paints – all form a totality that represents Affandi's energy, which emanated from within him when he was face-to-face with reality. What these images convey, therefore, are not messages; rather, it is power."
