Gert & Uwe Tobias
The catalogue shows the latest work by the increasingly important twin brother team of Gert and Uwe Tobias. In their virtuoso style, the pair of Cologne-based artists has opened a new chapter in their creative oeuvre: huge 81-by-68-inch works that pay homage to the ancient still-life tradition.
These monumental, woodblock-based works, which also combine gouache and collage, are also shown here in eye-popping installation photos. The brothers create a contemporary Cabinet of Curiosities, juxtaposing classical themes like flora, fauna or food with surreal, jarringly bright colors.
In barely a decade of work, the Tobias brothers have become major artists, represented in all important collections; here's a perfectly presented sample of their freshest, most provocative work.
