The present work exemplifies the abstract expressionism style painted in Affandi’s newfound style that is known as “squeezing the tube”. He invented this technique by accident, where he painted his works by directly squeezing the pigments out of its tube. As Affandi never painted by using a palette and disliked brushes, the subject on present piece was executed by squeezing with pigments, and then the pigments on canvas surface was smeared directly by his powerful and dexterously fingers in its ribbon-like shape to form The Rustic Lakeside subject in dramatically energy and movement. The present piece also exhibits delicious dense pigments and rich with vibrations representing the enthusiasm and encouragement of Affandi’s works trademark. It is truly splendid in execution, energetic involvement and composition, and the colors painted in vibrant hue exploring more dynamic mood on the vibrant rustic lakeside identity in his country.
