This graceful work combines the material with the figurative.
Originally, the ladies had met through a completely different hobby: riding Harley Davidson! But a visit to the design studio of former championship and couples dancer Beate Schlocker inspired Sylvia Schramm to a spontaneous photo shoot with the current dance dress designer. In one of her artistically and elaborately designed dresses, the Hanoverian transformed herself from “biker lady” to stage star from one minute to the next and floated, in perfect posture, across the parquet. Schramm’s thoughts swirled like the dancer’s gyrations, combining with the opulent fabrics and embroidery she had seen in the studio to create this unique work.
The partial application of slightly shimmering resin gives the work a plasticity and tactility. The colors shimmer and glow, depending on the light.
