Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s tragedy, Faust, Alexandru Cînean’s works are dominated by violent tones of red, with accents of violet, which suggests the intensity of the human aspiration towards absolute knowledge and unlimited earthly pleasure, and also its devilish element in the form of an irresistible temptation to pay off the fulfilment of this Promethean dream with the huge price of loosing one’s soul.
