The arrangement of relatively banal objects of our everyday life, like a can, had already inspired the pop art artist Andy Warhol. The oil, still plays an essential role for environment and the economy. Sylvia Schramm illustrates with the partial application of clear synthetic resin the viscous nature of the oil and thus creates a tangible plasticity.
The attractive label on the metal can turns it into a brand message and makes the oil look “clean”. The attractive label on the metal can turns it into a brand message and makes the oil look “clean”. The knowledge of the substance is detached from the product – and thus also from the consumer. Schramm interprets the metal can as a work of art on metal, but at the same time draws attention to the urgent need for alternatives to oil.

Technique

Schramm’s artistic technique is Digital Painting, which she has developed into something unique using knowledge gained from painting. The motif is printed on a metal plate using special, elaborate processes, creating a coexistence between substrate and color. The interplay between matte and sheen allows the viewer to literally feel the material and figurative, characterizing her impressive one-of-a-kind works. The partial application of clear synthetic resin hints at the viscous nature of the oil, giving it a tangible plasticity. Emblematic of preserving the ephemeral, this work has been “weightily” framed in industrial iron.

Suspension:
Gallery rail + steel cables + metal hooks (hang in the frame hook) or: use dowels.
