Red Skull, 2017

signed verso “Albrecht”
Red Skull is the Anti-Captain America: a bad guys’ hero, because he is truly evil, a war criminal, mass murderer and enemy of freedom. In this painting, a human skull appears and disintegrates at the same time.
People love skulls. I believe the reason is that they stand for the monster within us. They are a frightening symbol of death - yet without them non of us can live.Albrecht Behmel, The Magic of the Swarms
