The drawing combines personal inspirations and universally recognized cultural signs. While exploring the history and the present of art and visual culture in her paintings, in this intimate drawing the artist reflects on the development of her own work and reveals the visual impulses that have an impact on her works. The personality and creative career of the Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace becomes a point of departure here, acquiring almost the shape of a classical sculpture. The forms of the figure are reduced to barely recognizable hints, but typical classicized stylistics is retained.
