Coloured woodcut on paper
211 x 177 cm

Gert and Uwe Tobias manage to fuse the monochrome backgrounds of Yves Tanguy’s surrealist landscapes and the macabre faces of traditional apotropaeic amulets with the lightness of cartoons, worn down graffiti and schoolyard murals. There is something flayed about their figures – as if they have been peeled of their individuality, made into universal puppets or still lives.
