Gert & Uwe Tobias

b. 1973, Romania

The Romian twin brothers draw on their Easter-European heritage to create canvases that border between folk-surrealism and geometric abstraction. Their works are often playful, largescale woodcut prints that play with pattern, domestic imagery and typography. The ensuing tableux feature figures, dismembered and splayed across the canvas. This macabre subject is seemingly anachronistic yet threads together themes from thoughout the history of art, including the tradition of vanitas, modernism and print-making itself.
