Florian Boschitsch Bron, Faust, 2018

Just as the title suggests, the image is from Goethe’s play about Dr.Faust and the pact he makes with Mephistopheles for his soul in exchange for worldly pleasure and unlimited knowledge. Here we see Mephistopheles leaning over Faust’s shoulder and coaxing him into the deal, but Mephistopheles and Faust are the one in the same. The artist writes “I don’t want to say too much, because I generally believe that the best interpretation is always your (the viewer’s) own. That being said, the main idea is that more often than not in life, we are our own devils.”
