Coloured woodcut on papers mounted on canvas

In Gert and Uwe Tobias’s large-scale, carnivalesque panels we see an uncommon merging and subversion of techniques and traditions. The twin brothers, who have worked together since 2001, have created a world of their own out of reviving a diverse range of craft-based arts – wood-cuts, lace, embroidery and the national costume of their native Transylvania all find their way into their works.
