Sylvia Schramm provides us with a dramatic view of Hamburg’s Niederbaumbrücke, at the beginning of the western “Kehrwieder” warehouse district, where the Alster flows into the Elbe. From this location in Schramm‘s home town, the visitor also has a unique view of the inland port and the Speicherstadt. In the distance you can see the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall (2007-2016), Hamburg’s new landmark.

In the Hanseatic city, the weather is an important issue, as it is seldom brightly sunny and influences trade as well as the lives of the people. Therefore it determines the mood of this work. The picture axis runs diagonally and the clear lines of the buildings stand against the stormy, reddish clouds. The agitated movement and tension gives a foreboding of the coming drama and captivates the viewer with its picturesque play of colors.


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 metal plate by means of a special, complex process, whereby a Coexistence between substrate and paint is created. The interplay between matt and shine makes the viewer literally feel the material and figurative and characterizes her impressive unique pieces. Symbolically, in order to preserve the ephemeral, this work was “weightily” framed in industrial iron.

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