In art history class while the teacher was going on about the contrast, the brush work, the color palette and the meaning behind it all, I was sat there trying to figure out why all the faces in these paintings looked like they were from another planet. I never got around to asking the question in class but I always felt this immense separation between the faces all around me today and the faces in those classical paintings. Artist Dorothee Golz has come along and closed that gap for me. Taking modern scenery, fashion and body language and combining them with the faces of some of the most recognizable classical portrait art, art history class will never be the same again.
