Max Renneisen is a German painter based in Berlin. Central to his work is building upon the legacy of the Old Masters – exploration of the painterly possibilities of the imitation of nature in the light of modern imagery. His occupation with the natural world eventually led him to explore the role of mankind in it. Paradise Lost is a collection of paintings which renews the classical subject of the nude in nature. While the figures derive from nude photographs found in Free Body Culture-magazines from the 1950s, the surrounding landscapes are mere constructions inspired by Old Masters’ paintings. Renneisen’s distant, objectifying and often ironic view raises questions about the relationship between human culture and nature. In our design we were inspired by the aesthetic of the 1950’s and used a typography originating from that time. The layout, as simple as it is, reflects the heroic imagery of the nude paintings.
