ゴッホ展

日本人はゴッホが好きなんだと聞いたことがある。どんな根拠で言われた言葉か知らないが、確かにゴッホは有名だ。有名な画家はたくさんの人を展覧会に集める。混雑を避けて月曜日の午後に出かけてみた。それでも入場までに40分待ち。どの作品の前も、とても集中できる状態ではない。

それでも、彼はそこにいた。

過去に、ゴッホを狂気、孤高、悲運の画家として認識させる情報を受け取ったことがあったのだろうか。わたしが、画家としての彼にそんな先入観を抱いていたのはなぜだったのだろう。それとも、彼の作品に見られるゆがんだデッサンや色の重ね方に、尋常でない「世界の見え方」を感じ取っていたのだろうか。

今回私が彼の作品に会いに行った最大の理由は、もちろん、去年オルセーでおきた奇跡を、また味わいたいと思ったからだ。

奇跡は起きなかった。作品に集中するには人が多すぎた。
けれども、去年オルセーの彼の絵の前で奇跡が起きたわけを、知った。

ゴッホの絵は、ただ、ひとえに美しい。こんなに美しいと知らなかった。
彼は、絵を描いたのではなく、彼に見えるままに美を描いたのだ。彼の作品は絵としては破綻している。それなのに、美しい。人々が見過ごすようなつまらない単調な作品でさえ、みつめていると、描かれた梢の緑の重なりの中から「綺麗」があふれ出す。ましてや、色彩が踊る「サン・レミ修道院の庭」のきれいなこと。いつまでも見飽きない。「古靴」のたたずみの緊張感、その美しいこと。彼の感じた美がそのままそこにある。

その美への感受性が社会生活と共存できなかったとしても、それゆえ彼が社会的には狂気の人として生きたとしても、彼の作品は狂気を表現したものではない。

ゴッホの絵は、ただ、ひとえに美しい。こんなに美しいと知らなかった。
彼の作品のあまりの美しさゆえに、去年オルセーで、わたしは彼の世界へ落ちていったのだ。
彼の蒼、彼の黄、彼の翠、彼の紅の、あふれる色の光の中へ。
