Door de weide stapstapstap
Op z’n lange benen
Met zn vleugels klapklapklap
Vliegt hij snel daarhenen
Wie is toch die vreemde heer
Telken jaren komt hij weer

When I was a kid I watched Stampede Wrestling and once in a while André the Giant would show up and throw around a few 220lbs opponents half his size. Later in life I read some works by Samuel Beckett the Irish/French playwright. I then found out that Samuel Beckett and a high school aged André the Giant were neighbours in a small village outside of Paris and were apparently friends. To me this was such a beautiful case of high brow/low brow and sparked this painting; Beckett was fond of symbols in his plays. Willow trees have been used as symbols of death and though the species is not clearly identified, the tree in Beckett’s Waiting for Godot seems to symbolize death, and its description implies a pollard willow. Conversely storks often symbolize life and rebirth. The never-seen character, Godot, was by some accounts based on a French cyclist, a “domestique” who never won stages but was always there to help his teammates to victory. His fans would always be “waiting for Godot” to finish the race. Beckett was an accomplished athlete in cricket, rugby, swimming and cycling and referred to the bicycle as The Cartesian Centaur because it was the most efficient hybrid of man and machine. That is where I got the title to this painting. .

Hemma efter en fantastisk resa till Schweiz och Liechtenstein! Alperna är bland det vackraste jag sett hittills i livet 🏔️💚 Trots rätt mycket regn var det fyra fantastiska dagar som bjöd på enastående vacker natur och fågelliv till fots tillsammans med fina vänner. Vi hade även turen att se kungsörn, stork, två (!) bisamråttor som simmade i en kanal och flera vackra sandödlor i sina färgsprakande lekdräkter 🦎 Vilken jäkla resa! 😍💚 #älskalivet#alperna#natur#biologpåtur#stork#sandödla
