Regina Thyssen's paintings appear abstract at first. At second glance,
however, one begins to recognize figures and landscapes. This painting
was made for the exhibition "Grenzgänge - Kunst im Bordell" (crossing
borders - art in the brothel). This series of paintings was dedicated to the
female body and, put on exhibit in a real brothel, aims at crossing the
borderlines between subject and object, lust and self-determination. This
goal has led to the creation of other such colourful female nudes which
expand on the canvas like landscapes.
