Classic Portraits Get Modern Bodies - Dorothee Golz by Benjamin Starr | Hauntology | Scoop.it

'When we look at classic portraits, it's easy to feel disassociated from the lives of the people we're viewing. Often they are surrounded by opulent interiors and clothed in equal splendor, with poses which seem rigid and contrived compared to our modern world of quick snapshots and relaxed clothing. Not until we take one aspect of these images, that which is most timelessly human, do the people become obviously real and easily personalized. That’s just what artist Dorothee Golz has done in her fascinating digital paintings.' - Benjamin Starr
