Regine Schumann studied from 1982 to 1989 at the Hochschule für Bildene Künste Braunschweig art. In 1989 she was acknowledged as a master student of Roland Dörfler. From 1986 to 1994 she was a member of the artist group Freiraum, consisting of Frank Fuhrmann, Dieter Hinz and herself. Aside of numerous scholarships (amongst others a DAAD-scholarship for Italy in 1990 and a grant from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for Japan in 2000) and contracts for public art, she received the Leo Breuer Prize in 2006. Regine Schumann lives and works in Cologne. In her work Regine Schumann focuses on light effects caused by fluorescent materials. Some of the materials she uses are colored polylight-cords and different colored acrylic panels, which she composes into complex colour spaces in accordance to Goethe's theory of colours. The artist also uses blacklight to complement the other colours. The emphasis of her room-specific installations is the extension of the existing architecture to a dimension of vibration and - as she calls it - the configuration of a room temperature: "Der Einbezug bildhauerischer Prinzipien wie Hängen, Legen, Arrangieren, Verspannen, Umhüllen ist charakteristisch für die Arbeit Regine Schumanns und führt das Denken in Farben und Farbräumen in eine räumlich erfahrbare Plastizität über." ("The inclusion of sculptural principles as hanging, laying, arranging, conjointing, jacketing is characteristic of the work of Regine Schumann and leads towards a thinking in colors and color spaces in a spatially experiential plasticity.") Regine Schumann describes her method of operation in this way: "Das Material des farbigen und fluoreszierenden Acrylglases spielt hierbei eine wichtige Rolle. Der von mir verwendete Werkstoff leuchtet, sobald ihm Lichtenergie zugeführt wird, sei es in Form von natürlichem Tageslicht oder von Kunstlicht. Durch die unterschiedlich farbigen Platten ergibt sich je nach Standort ein Durchleuchten, Schichten, Mischen und Selektieren." ("It's the material of the colored and fluorescent acrylic glass that takes an important role in my work. The material used by me illuminates when light energy is supplied to it, whether in the form of natural daylight or artificial light. Differently colored plates depending on the location lead towards a candling, laying, blending and selection of the light itself.") The constant changes and effects of light is what fascinates the artist and what she focuses her room-specific installations and works on.
