In the United States, parallels have been drawn between the HIV/AIDS crisis and what is unfolding with Covid-19. These connections feed into P·P·O·W's online exhibition, Hell is a Place on Earth. Heaven is a Place in Your Head .
The Transylvanian-born Germany based artists, Gert & Uwe Tobias are collaborators and identical twins. The Tobias brothers paint, sculpt, draw with a typewriter and make large scale woodcuts. Their renewed and colourful take on traditional medias such as ceramics and woodcuts form the body of their work together with an almost nostalgic approach to making art, as each work is handmade by both sets of artists hands. In their exhibitions, the Tobias brothers often combine these media; the almost animalistic ceramics and large-scale woodcuts together–all of which display lush, vivid colour and strong graphic compositions. Drawing on sources as diverse as popular culture, traditional Eastern European folk art and art historical movements such as constructivism, the Tobias brothers create artworks that are both playful and haunting.
