Thaysen is equally comfortable as a painter, sculptor or draughtsman. His work is predominantly preoccupied with the human figure, and how physical appearances are so intricately intertwined with character and personality. His nonchalant figures are imbued with an aura of sexuality, lust and euphoria – seemingly free from self-conscious constraint. Thaysen is fond of using unconventional, brightly coloured materials such as resin and fibre-glass – reinforcing a prevailing mood of light-hearted amorousness.
