Oh august Penelope,
you are weaving a pall
for Laertes, your grey
You will not marry one
of the obtrusive suitors,
before it will be finished.

You pull out your daily
progress every night,
until disloyal servants
give away your cunning.


Oh verheven Penelope,
je weeft een lijkkleed
voor Laertes, jouw
grijze schoonvader.
Je trouwt niet met een
van de opdringerige
vrijers, voordat het af is.

Je dagelijkse vorderingen
haal je elke nacht weer
uit, totdat trouweloze
dienstmaagden jouw
list verraden.

Jos Letschert Thanks Torsten, yes, it is an older work, but fitting in the story I thought. I am fascinating by the amount of little stories in the big story of the Odyssee.

A Lenglet I have a great attraction with your abstract work. A contemporary translation of an ancient history.

Jos Letschert Henk, dank je hartelijk voor je mooie compliment. Ik waardeer ook je aandacht voor de tekst zeer. Tekst en beeld zijn voor mij elkaar zeer aanvullende elementen. Het een leidt het andere, en omgekeerd.

Jos Letschert Frédéric, my abstracts concern of two workflows: Impromptus (more-less improvised work) and Elaborations (more-less constructed work). This is one of my Elaborations. The text refers to the Odyssee. Odysseus left for Troy and is away for 20 years. His wife Penelope doesn't know if he is alive or dead (no whats app in those days of course). She has to resist a large group of lovers, who want to marry her. She tries to postpone that by saying that she has to finish at first a shroud for her old father in law. Every day she is working on it, at night she destroys what she has made by day, just to gain time, until she has been treated by her disloyal servants. Fortunately for her Odysseus returns at that point in the story and he kills the suitors, with the help of some friends (the god Athena, Eumaeus, the swineherd and Telemachos, his only son.

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Frédéric, I forgot to say, the painting is my expression or imagination of how the Pall could have looked like. The weave pattern so to say, painted in acryl with some parts of gold, and with one quadrant fallen out of the pitch, a kind of ironic additional element, left over the observers phantasy.
