This work was found during Baltimore’s ArtScape 2015 Lazy River Exhibition as a temporary sight-specific public artwork in Pearlstone Park, Baltimore, MD. Inspired by Botticelli's painting The Birth of Venus, and by the creation story of the mythological Venus. Colors of Colours Fountain: Ode to the Birth of Venus is a vibrant interpretation of an emerging form of "beauty", created by blending an inventive assemblage of materials. Through a kaleidoscope of saturated color and a playful means of combining elements of the familiar with the unexpected, Rausch works to create a unique representation of the funky but beautiful contemporary divine. The “pearl” disco ball heart center sculpture is the abstracted Venus floating on her shell.
