Dorothee Golz’s Digital Painting Series Are A Great Mash Up Of Renaissance Paintings And Modern Photography
You’ve got to love Dorothee Golz‘s ‘Digital Painting’ series. A mashup of faces from classic Renaissance paintings and contemporary photographs that look as if they belong in a fashion magazine. You’ll probably recognise at least some of the images such as Dürer’s ‘Self Portrait’, Holbeins ‘Anne Of Cleves’ and Vermeers’s ‘Girl With The Pearl Earring.
Golz approached this project for two main reasons; the first was her interest in art history, the second the concept of gender roles at different times of history. The images are telling, give life to the Renaissance faces that we have always seen as dead, still, lifeless, gone, of the past. They’re also fun. There’s a real sense of delight in Golz’s digital paintings – she must have had a great laugh reframing these famous muses of the past.
