Heavenly women, dressed in flowing robes, are the main characters in the work of Schmets. The woman as virgin, mother and lover, a force that men will never possess. In the series FEMINA Sancta Seven Virtues, the worship of women is the central theme.
The method and techniques used by Schmets make his work distinctive and recognizable in an instant. His initial pencil sketches are made to include images from up to 35 different photos. Metallic paper stuck on dibond and embedded in resin gives each work its own distinctive look.
