Peacock

Maintenant que la cruauté m’enserre, que tout pèse d’un poids infini, je trouve refuge auprès du paon, cette créature que j’aime depuis une époque lointaine. Par lui, j’ai voulu m’éloigner des évènements douloureux, et me reposer pour un temps.

Avec légèreté et fluidité, il a trouvé sa place à l’intérieur du tableau. J’ai souvent ajouté un point rouge afin de le distraire de ce qui l’entoure. Je l’ai inondé de noir afin de faire ressortir son caractère unique, son indépendance. Quant au grand cercle qui apparait dans nombre de mes travaux, il est déjà présent dans des projets antérieurs, tels que « Le disparu » ou bien « L’arbre ». Mais ici, il sert à fixer le paon devant mes yeux, de peur qu’il se retire brusquement, qu’il s’évanouisse.

Je comprends que son unique défense possible est sa beauté, et son chant étrange, douloureux, comme l’appel d’un homme seul. Je porte en moi-même une crainte révérencielle devant cette créature sacrée, présente dans les histoires des anciens et leurs légendes. Mais, qu’il représente l’Ange ou le Démon par excellence, le paon reste un paon.

الطاووس

الآن، وقد اشتدّت عليّ القسوة وبات كلّ شيء ثقيلاً ثقلاً لا ينتهي، ألوذ بهذا الكائن الذي أحبّه منذ وقت بعيد. أردتُ به الابتعاد عن الأحداث الموجعة والاستراحة إلى حين.

اهتدى الطاووس إلى مكانه داخل لوحتي في انسياب وخفّة، وغالباً ما أضفتُ نقطة حمراء إلى اللوحة لأشغله عما يحيط به، وغمرته بالسواد لإبراز فرادته واستقلاليته. أما الدائرة الكبيرة التي تظهر في الكثير من أعمالي فماثلة في مشاريع عديدة سابقة مثل "المفقود" و "الشجرة"، غير أنّني أضعها هنا ليثبت الطاووس أمام عينيّ مخافة انسحابه المباغت وتلاشيه.

مدركاً أن الدفاع الوحيد الممكن لدى الطاووس هو جماله، وصوته الغريب الموجع كاستغاثة شخص وحيد، أحمل في نفسي نوعاً من الرهبة تجاه قداسة هذا الكائن، الحاضر في حكايات القدماء وأساطيرهم، ولكن يبقى الطاووس طاووساً، سواء أكان إبليس أم كبير الملائكة.
