I have been inspired by Gustav Klimt since I first saw a print of "The Kiss" hanging in a friends home more than ten years ago.

I have never been inspired to copy or replicate his work.
However, I have been inspired by all of the elements he employs. One for example, the way he turns faces sideways. But more than that, I love the decorative flowers, geometric shapes, colors, gold, and busy sometime flat background decorations.
I am fascinated with the way he gets depth of emotion, as well as, depth within the work while juxtaposing large areas of flat decoration with sensual figures.

It felt right to include my version of details from his famous works of fine art in my project of One Hundred Faces.
