프란시스 베이컨이 여러 화가에게 영향을 받은 것은 알고 있었지만, 피카소를 이렇게 중하게 거론할 줄은 몰랐다. 암튼, 대단한 사람임에는 틀림없다. 오늘부터 지인이 준 책을 읽고 있는데 교재로 생각하고 있을만큼 파장이 크다. 큰 의미일 수록 심플하고 진솔하다.

Three Studies for the Portrait of Henrietta Moraes 1963
Oil on canvas three panels Each panel 14 1_8 x 12 1_8
 
 
 
written by Milan Kundera
 

때는 1972년 무렵이었다. 나는 프라하 외곽에 있는 어느 집에서 젊은 여자를 만나고 있었다. 그 집은 그곳 사람들이 내게 마련해주었다. 내가 만난 그 여자는 이틀 전에 경찰서에서 하루 종일 나에 관해 조사를 받았다. 그래서 그 여자는 남몰래 나를 만나 자신이 받은 취조의 내용을 나한테 알려주고 싶어 했던 것이다. 자기가 받은 질문과 자신이 한 대답들을 말이다. 그러면서 그녀는 남이 자신의 뒤를 밟고 있다는 점이 두렵다고 말했다. 그녀가 이렇게 나를 찾아준 이유는, 만에 하나 내가 훗날 취조를 받더라도 답변이 그녀의 그것과 일치해야 하기 때문이었다.

그녀는 아직 세상 경험이 많지 않은 꽃다운 청춘의 아가씨였다. 심문으로 인해 그녀는 가슴속을 캤奏?듯한 고통을 느꼈다. 그래서 벌써 사흘째 그녀의 창자는 뒤틀리는 듯했다. 그녀의 얼굴은 온통 창백했다. 그녀는 대화를 나누는 도중에 화장실에 가기 위해 방을 계속 들락거렸다. 그래서 그런지 만나는 도중 계속해서 변기의 물 매리는 소리가 들려왔다.

나는 그녀를 오래 전부터 알고 지냈다. 그녀는 지적이었고, 재기 발랄했다. 그녀는 자신의 감정을 잘 다스릴 줄 알았으며, 옷차림은 늘 나무랄ㄷ 없었다. 그래서인지 그녀의 행실은 물론이고 그녀의 옷차림도 사소한 허점 하나 노출하지 않았다. 그런데 지금 갑자기 두려움이 마치 칼날처럼 그녀를 절개하고 있었다. 그녀는 내 앞에서 서서 푸줏간 갈고리에 걸린 어린 염소의 갈라진 몸통같은 만신창이의 모습을 하고 있었다.

실제로 변기의 물 내리는 소리는 멈추지 않았다. 그래서 난 갑자기 그녀를 짓밟고 싶은 충돌이 일었다. 그녀를 짓밟는다는 말이 뜻하는 바는 무엇인가? 그건 그녀와 사랑을 나누고 싶다는 것이 아니다. 나는 그녀의 사랑을 노리고 있지는 않았다. 난 그녀의 얼굴에 잔인하게 손을 얹고 잠시라도 그녀를 완전하게 소유하고 싶었다. 그건 그녀가 갖고 있던 이율배반이 참을 수 없을 만큼 나를 자극했기 때문이었다. 나무랄 데 없는 옷차림과 요동치는 창자, 그녀의 이성과 그녀의 두려움, 그녀의 자부심과 그녀의 불행이라는 이율배반이 나를 자극하여 그녀를 소유하고 싶은 충동을 일게 했던 것이다. 난 이런 이율배반이 그녀의 본질을 숨기고 있다는 인상을 받았다. 보물, 금괴, 그녀의 가슴 깊숙이 숨어 있는 다이아몬드. 이런 것들이 그녀의 본질일지도 몰랐다. 나는 한순간이나마 그녀를 갖고 싶었다. 이루 형언할 수 없이 고귀한 영혼을 지녔으면서도 동시에 창자는 똥으로 가득 찬 그녀를.

하지만 난 불안한 듯 나를 주시하는 그녀의 눈을 보았다. 이성적인 얼굴의 불안스런 눈을 말이다. 그리고 그녀의 눈이 불안에 젖어 들면 들수록, 나의 탐욕을 실현한다는 것은 그만큼 더 불합리하고, 어리석고, 터무니없고, 이해할 수 없으며, 불가능해 보였다.
나의 탐욕은 잘못된 것이었고 또 용서할 수 없는 성격의 것이었지만, 실현 불가능한 것만은 아니었다. 프란시스 베이컨이 그린 세폭 그림triptych을 보면, 난 마치 그때의 기억이 되살아나는 듯함을 부인할 수 없다.

화가의 시선은 잔인한 손처럼 얼굴에 놓여 있다. 그러면서 화가의 시선은 그 얼굴의 본질, 즉 그 내면 깊숙한 곳에 놓여 숨어 있는 다이아몬드를 소유하려고 애쓰고 있다. 물론 그 깊은 내면이 정말로 뭔가를 숨기고 있는지 아닌지를 우리는 확인할 수가 없다. 하지만 그것은 어떻더라도 상관없다. 우리 모두에게는 잔인한 몸동작, 즉 손놀림이 있다. 타인의 얼굴을 쓰다듬으며, 타인의 가슴속에 혹은 그 깊은 곳에 숨어 있는 무엇인가를 발견해 내려는 손놀림이 말이다.

"Very few people find their real instincts. Every now and then there's an artist who does and who makes something new and actually thickens the texture of life. But it's very rare you have to be able to be really free to find yourself in that way, without any moral or religious constraints. After all, life is nothing but a series of sensations, so one may as well try and make oneself extraordinary, extraordinary and brilliant, even if it means becoming brilliant fool like me and having the kind of disastrous life that i have had. That is it."

"Perhaps, at its deepest level, realism is always a subjective thing. When I see grass, I sometimes want to pull up a clump and simply paint it on the canvas. But of course that would not work, and we need to invent the techniques by which reality can be conveyed to our nervous system without losing the objectivity of the thing portrayed."

" My paintings are, if you like, a record of this distortion...Abstract art is free fancy about nothing. nothing comes from nothing. One needs the specific images to unlock the deeper sensations, and the mystery of accident and intuition  to create the particular. Now I want to do portraits more than anything else, because they can be done in a way outside illustration. It is a gamble composed of luck, intuition and order. Real art is always ordered no matter how much has been given by chance."

"Half monster, half human, Bacon's creatures are frozen not in a pose or image, but in time itself. - time as a continuous phenomenon, a dimension that is a more essential part of reality than mere appearance. The challenge for the artist, therefore, is not to make visible a detached moment of general time, a story, anecdote or piece of narrative, but to demonstrate time itself as a continuum."

"The existential-ontological constitution of Dasein's totality is grounded in temporality. Hence the ecstatical projection of Being must be made possible by some primordial way in which ecstatical temporality temporalizes. How is this mode of the temporalizing of temporality to be Interpreted? Is there a way which leads from primordial time to the meaning of Being? Does time itself manifest itself as the horizon of Being?"

"Falling Being-in-the-world is not only tempting and tranquilizing; it is at the same time alienating. Yet this alienation cannot mean that Dasein gets factically torn away from itself. On the contrary, this alienation drives it into a kind of Being which borders on the most exaggerated 'self-dissection', tempting itself with all possiblities of explanation, so that the very 'characterologies' and 'typologies' which it has brought about are themselves already becoming something that cannot be surveyed at a glance."
