Froome Chasing Geese - Original Painting + Prints
‘Froome Chasing Geese’ – an original painting, acrylic on canvas. It was inspired by a stage of a 2016 Tour De France, during which, after a massive uphill and a nervous competition between Chris Froome and Nairo Quintana, a crash took place in the front rows of a breakaway that included Chris Froome. It happened because of a misplaced finish line. The stage was finishing high in the mountains but due to the weather conditions, the finish line that was covered in snow was moved lower, down the hill. That caused a tightening in a crowd. A motorcycle, that was supposed to clear the way, ran into the standing too close spectators and suddenly hit breaks blocking the cyclists. As a result of a crash, Chris Froome was left without his bike (it was broken). Excluding hesitation Chris started to run towards a finish line, that was just around the corner. It reminded me of that feeling of chasing geese when you are a kid and you are running for life. Also, I was inspired by that book ‘The Wonderful Adventures of Nils’, that I remembered from childhood.
