at the local reception Neukirchen / Newchurch, the scene of the motorbike meet Triumph Tridays 2011: “my” undercover cover as oversized poster & I asked myself: would Scot stuntman Kevin Carmichael  paint after my command with his bike a prepared canvas?

my foresight: “Gilbert meets George” & “George meets Gilbert” at the Hoferhaus in Newchurch – a part of the exhibition

 in reality I met the second day Kevin & Dirk:

motorbike stunt world champion Kevin Carmichael persuaded companion German stuntman Dirk Manderbach to join in the paint stunt performance. here both after the action – they had obviously fun – in spite of rain, what made with water the slippery  oil colour performance not easier

& finally both set by hand their autograph on the canvas baptized “Rainy Tridays´ Traces”

here some work in progress photos in my atelier about the recent art work for The Triumph Tridays 2011; always in my mind: a planned paint-stunt-performance with the Scot stuntman Kevin Carmichael in Neukirchen/Newchurch, Salzburg, Austria (the painted, printed & drawn works  will be shown at the Hoferhaus there) – I have to add: I´m no biker, just ride the rims with Bridgestone´s rubber tyre coloured with Daler Rowney Georgian oil colours under my ass…

oh god, that´s not water – it´s terpentine!

“By the King: Whereas, some differences hath arisen between Our subjects of South and North Britaine travelling by Seas, about the bearing of their Flagges: For the avoiding of all contentions hereafter. We have, with the advice of our Council, ordered: That from henceforth all our Subjects of this Isle and Kingdome of Great Britaine, and all our members thereof, shall beare in their main-toppe the Red Crosse commonly called St George´s Crosse and the White Crosse, commonly called St. Andrew’s Crosse, joyned together according to the forme made by our heralods and sent by Us to our Admerall to be published to our Subjects: and in their fore-toppe our Subjects of South Britaine shall weare the Red Crosse onely as they were wont, and our Subjects of North Britaine in their fore-toppe the White Crosse onely as they were accustomed.”

King James I, 1603

Like other countries with St George as a patron, the English frequently used St George’s cross as their flag.

During the first Crusade, the Pope decided that knights of different nationalities should be distinguished by different colours of cross. French knights were allocated the red cross on white. English knights complained about this, since they considered this to be “their” St George’s cross

… or does not?: one of Gilbert & George´s “Jack Freak Pictures” exhibited at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg this spring …

… somebody out of the Halle shouts by graffiti: “better than J. Meese” …

April sun awakes the bike drivers – they  gather to test their driving skills next the nearby asphalt serpentine across the Leithagebirge. – & me  – I take out my Bridgestone bike wheels & oil colours & I ask myself about continuity in artwork, about the number “3” in art, about trinity, triptych & the Tridays´project in “Newchurch” Neukirchen/Salzburg, Austria in July this year.
