The force of this work hits the viewer with great force. CLEAN SWEEP is the title and, according to Sylvia Schramm’s interpretation, the need to have made a “clean sweep”. It is imaginable – maybe because of a huge rage? A strong woman sits among broken pieces of glass and holds a hammer in her hand – did she have to free herself from her anger? Posture and expression do not indicate despair – on the contrary – a defeat of fate and liberation of the soul. Through the cutout format, a photo or a postcard is associated, suggesting that the circumstances that triggered the rage have been overcome and are past.

The complementary colors support the dynamics of the situation. Foreground and background are interwoven, but the stiletto connects the layers. The “sharpness” of the glass shards and their play of light is supported by the reflection of the partially visible metallic shine of the carrier plate.


Schramms artistic technique is digital painting, which she has developed into something unique with the knowledge gained from painting. The motif is printed onto a shiny aluminium plate using special, complex processes, which creates a coexistence between the background and the aplicated paint. The play between matt and shiny makes the viewer literally feel the fabric and figurative and characterizes her impressive unique pieces. In the same technique the artist developed her series of works “Cutout” from laser-cut, hand-polished aluminium plates.

Gallery rail + steel cables + metal hooks (hang in the rear spacers). Or: use dowels.
