いいですよね、この絵。
きっと7年前の僕にはだらしなく思えたのでしょうね。
それでこのサイトに取り上げることもなく没にしたのでしょうね。
でも今の僕には適度に崩れていていい、人は年月とともに変化していくし、

この7月8月、訳あって自分の過去の作品の多くに目を通しました。
そんな整理の最中にこの絵は作品集の中から本当にひらりと一枚だけ床の上に舞い降りてきました。

その当時は技術的なことがどうのこうのと考えて今一つだなあと思っていた絵が、何年も経過して改めて観てみると、もう今の自分には当時こだわっていたようなことは取るに足りない些事に過ぎず、そんな気負いのようなものが取り払われて、絵そのものがすごく語りかけてくることがあります。

この絵の余白に、Un petit jardin pour Maman, 23×25 cm, 28 août 2012 の書き込みがありました。
この絵の副題を「小さな喜び」あるいは「小さな幸せ」としてもいいかもしれないな。

Dear friends,

Recently I have come to think that a painting is a profound thing. This picture is nice, isn’t it?  Probably, seven years ago, the picture seemed loose for me. However, for me now, the one can be moderately broken, and that’s good for me now. People change over time, even a person like me will grow a little. In July and August, I have watched many of my past works for a reason. In the middle of such arrangement, this picture really fell from my works’ collection on the studio’s floor.
After all, when you draw a picture, you may not know the truth about whether the picture is good or bad at that time.
It may be a little joy and happiness of my work that I can draw and accumulate in the form of painting every day as a serious and central matter in my life. Unfortunately, I can’t express it well even in Japanese.
A painting is directly linked to maturity as a human being, and if I can continue to have the spirit of enjoying ugliness*¹ a little more on a daily basis, it will be a quiet feeling to enjoy my life in my late years. I may be able to reach a quiet place where I can talk to myself and a place that I had never dreamed of when I was young and very hard. Probably, I think that “Do not judge” in the Bible will also be connected here.
In the margin of this picture, there was a writing of “Un petit jardin pour Maman, 23×25 cm, 28 août 2012”. I wonder that the subtitle of this one may be “A little joy” or “A little happiness”.
Anyway, a painting is a really good thing, because a painting can accept them while living with the growth and change of people, I finally think that way at this time.

Warm regards,

But thinking so I came at once
Where solitary man sat weeping on a bench,
Hanging his head down, with his mouth distorted
Helpless and ugly as an embryo chicken.
-1929- W. H. Auden
