Gert and Uwe Tobias (German, born Romania, 1973) are collaborators and twin brothers, based in Germany, whose work centers on large-scale woodcuts, but also includes typewriter drawings and watercolors, handmade ceramic sculptures, and wooden constructions. They often combine these varied mediums—all of which display lush, vivid color and strong graphic compositions—in installations. Drawing on such diverse sources as popular culture, traditional Eastern European folk art, and art historical movements like Constructivism, the Tobias brothers create a body of work that is both playful and haunting.
Organized by Sarah Suzuki, The Sue and Eugene Mercy, Jr., Assistant Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books.
The Projects series is made possible by the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Endowment Fund and by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art and the JA Endowment Committee.
