I was researching artists yesterday and came across the work of Gert and Uwe Tobias. They are twins from Romania who live in Germany and just happen to have work that opened at the Moma this last month which runs through February 25, 2008.

They do large scale woodcuts with immediate whimsy and an undertone of darkness that is very mysterious. Check out the Moma website and it features images and installation video.

Moma Exhibition Projects 86: Gert and Uwe Tobias

Hammer Museum in Los Angeles exhibition in 2007

Team Gallery featuring an exhibition from March 2007

The Team Gallery website includes these images: The Devil is Not Mocked and The Funeral which shows that dark folk tale feel fostered in their native Transylvania, but updated by their use of typology and graphic design.

Makes me want to go cut some block!
