imagine finding a klimtian woman carrying piero della francesca’s child, or botticelli’s venus flanked by salvador dalí’s surrealist tigers. well, imagine no more thanks to italian architect claudia storelli who has created this series called ‘the impossible dialogues’. storelli uses digital tools to create unexpected pairings, bringing together characters from different paintings and artistic movements through time.

‘woman I’

botticelli’s venus and dalì’s tigers are put together to represent the struggle many women face when walking alone at night

storelli tells designboom that her main goal is ‘to move people’s hearts, go beyond limits of any kind, creating connections that we wouldn’t normally expect.’  the manipulated images offer fresh perspectives of paintings that are centuries old while allowing new audiences to enjoy these famous artworks thanks to social media.

‘the storm is coming’

vincent van gogh, ‘landscape from saint-rémy’ (1889) and tiziano, ‘bacco e arianna’ (1520)

 

 

as well as enlivening well known works of art, the series also seeks to highlight human relationships and other contemporary issues. for example, ‘woman I’ frames botticelli’s timeless venus from the 15th century with snarling tigers painted by salvador dalí in 1944 in a bid to convey the dangers women often face when walking home alone at night. to see more impossible dialogues, you can check out the dedicated instagram page here.
