The banishment from paradise, or the fall of man, or the fall, is a term used in Christianity to describe the transition of the first man and woman from a state of innocent obedience to God to a state of guilty disobedience. Although not named in the Bible, the doctrine of the fall comes from a biblical interpretation of Genesis chapter 3. At first, Adam and Eve lived with God in the Garden of Eden, but the serpent tempted them into eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which God had forbidden. After doing so, they became ashamed of their nakedness and God expelled them from the Garden to prevent them from eating from the tree of life and becoming immortal. More on banishment from paradise

Jacopo da Ponte, called Bassano (1510-1592) was born in Bassano del Grappa. His father, Francesco da Ponte, was also a painter and influenced the style of the young Bassano. Bassano lived and worked, at least temporarily, in Venice. Here he studied the works of his fellow painters Bonifazio, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. He painted a large number of Christian themes, but also animals and genre motifs emerged in large numbers. His works were characterized especially by his lucid colors. He ran a workshop where four of his sons, trained by himself, participated. Bassano was one of the most influential Venetian painters of the 16th century. More on Jacopo da Ponte

Paradise is the term for a place of timeless harmony. The Abrahamic faiths associate paradise with the Garden of Eden, that is, the perfect state of the world prior to the fall from grace, and the perfect state that will be restored in the World to Come.

Paradisaical notions are cross-cultural, often laden with pastoral imagery, and may be cosmogonical or eschatological or both, often compared to the miseries of human civilization: in paradise there is only peace, prosperity, and happiness. Paradise is a place of contentment, a land of luxury and fulfillment. Paradise is often described as a “higher place”, the holiest place, in contrast to this world, or underworlds such as Hell. More on Paradise

The picture belongs to the series “Matisse”.

I got inspired by his work “the enjoyment of life”. Maxim Fomenko


Maxim Fomenko: “My name is Maxim Fomenko. I was born in 1981 in Pyatigorsk. It`s a beautiful city in southwestern Russia and is one of the oldest health resorts in the country. My father has been a painter and I grew up in an artistic environment. So I could not think about anything else but to become also an artist. That’s why I went to a painting school for four years before I began my graphic design studies at a vocational school. Due to the move to Germany with my family I applied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg instead of the Saint Petersburg Academy of Arts. And I was accepted. After twelve semesters of studying all possible fields of arts I left the Academy as a master student and have been working as a freelance artist since 2012.” More on Maxim Fomenko
