Romanian twin brothers Gert and Uwe Tobias create large-scale woodcuts and sculptural constructions. They use the dark mythologies and history of their native Transylvania as their subject, bringing age-old folktales and imagery into the realm of the present. The prints and sculptures make reference not only to skulls and monsters, but also to modern graphic design, ancient ceramic forms, camp Hollywood horror films, and abstract imagery. The artistsí multi-media installations explore the way in which legends are formed and how objects stimulate cultural memory
