- An art-only exploration of the works of twin collaborative artists, Gert and Uwe Tobias - The collage based images in this publication represent the twins' creative codependency, and their ability to skilfully integrate many forms of art into a single display piece. Twin brothers Gert and Uwe Tobias have been working successfully as an artist duo since the end of the 1990s. Because sharing is the basis of their art, the twins discovered that collage, a cross-media technique that involves multiple forms of artistry, is the best representation of their style. They convert a multitude of figures into drawings, ceramic sculptures and woodcuts, constantly varied and recombined. Raised in Transylvania, they are still influenced by their German-Romanian roots and the wealth of folk motifs from their native country of origin. In addition to myth-shrouded symbolism, many details of their work - the intense colours of the costumes and fabrics, and the exquisite embroidery on the cushions - are reminiscent of their homeland. Gert and Uwe Tobias are especially well known for their large woodcuts, the genre that is still the focus of their art production. The pictures in this book have been created in a potato print-like process, in which the contours are sawn out of poplar, coated with paint and pressed onto paper or, more recently, on canvas. This publication displays exclusively collages and does not contain any text.
