Gert and Uwe Tobias @ Maureen Paley, London

January 04, 2012

Gert and Uwe Tobias hail from Transylvania, inspiring their devout interest in folk lore and regional mythologies that draw from biographical sources as well as cultural identity and popular culture. Their work combines eccentric figuration, geometric abstraction, and typographic elements into their various wall paintings, large scale woodblock prints, collages, and typewriter images. The twin artists have exhibited widely in museums and galleries around Europe and the United States and their show at Maureen Paley will be up until January 15, 2012.
