Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

'Isolda Dychauk as Margarete (Gretchen)': This work was inspired by Goethe's 'Faust', by Isolda Dychauk's interesting face and by her great performance in Alexander Sokurov's movie 'Faust'.

Light and darkness are key motivs in 'Faust'. I chose a scene where concentrated light shines on Gretchen's face while she is about to follow Faust. I confront the bright face with a dark landscape-like background. Gretchen is full of expectation but she is aware of the risks of a relationship to Faust.

Oil on canvas. Signed on the back.
Ready to hang.
