the color blue

gentlemen's club

The painting contains a fragment of Goethe's "Faust", in which the hero meets Margaret for the first time. He proposes to walk her home. This time the girls refuses this time, but in the context of the drama as a whole, we know how this seemingly innocent flirt will end. The man shown on the painting has a mephisto-like look of an evil spirit on a nocturnal hunt. A bored and thrill seeking yuppie, on his way to a gentleman's club.

This painting contains a fragment of Francois Villons poem "Bouche de fraise" in its german translation ("Ich bin so wild nach deinem Erdbeermund"), because in this version it is, in my opinion, particularly expressive. As a whole the works is almost brutal in character.
