Renato Abreu - Prelúdio
This book accompanies Abreu’s first retrospective and covers his interests in the alchemy of light, our “being-in-the-world,” and the potent effects of his portraits, abstractions, structural and sculptural motifs. The photography of Abreu has a certain contradicting melancholy and the design elements reflect this mood by making use of the patterned emoticons to communicate the overall sombre theme in a playful manner. The rest of the layout is kept very clean so there will be no additional noise when it comes to the interpretation of the work.
