Inspired by the book "Where the Wild Guys Live", Theresa decided to make her surname Gregor her first name, so people thought the artist was a man and she painted a series of extremely colorful pictures. For her it was a liberation "to work as a man". For Theresa Gregor, these works in this series are an antithesis of the minimalism of recent years in the art scene. The grapefruit originated around 1750 from the crossing of an orange and a pomelo on the Caribbean island of Barbados. The grapefruit is therefore ideally suited to the theme that Theresa Gregor deals with in this series - the journey to a distant, "exotic" land.
