In its metallic shining and plasticity, this work almost seems almost abstract. The goddess Venus – a classic ideal of “divine beauty” – is transported into modern times here. A Couture dress would probably have been the appropriate clothing for the normally naked lady in Sandro Botticelli’s painting.

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.

Symbolically, in order to preserve the ephemeral, this work was “weightily” framed in industrial iron.
