Maureen Paley is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in London by the Cologne-based brothers Gert & Uwe Tobias (born in 1973 in Brasov, Rumania).

Gert & Uwe Tobias’ exhibitions often incorporate wall paintings, large-scale woodcut prints, collages, type-writer drawings and ceramic sculptures. Their works embrace eccentric figuration, geometric abstraction, and the typographic. The brothers' interest in folklore and regional mythologies provides a contextual framework for their practice, that simultaneously draws on personal biography, cultural identity, and popular culture.
