This award-winning exhibition from the Alexandra Museum of Art’s permanent collection features work from the later years of innovative Jewish artist Theo Tobiasse (1927-2012). As a teenager living in Paris, Tobiasse and his family were forced into hiding during the city’s Nazi occupation from 1942-1944. Tobiasse’s work – influenced by surrealism, expressionism, and modern primitivism – explores themes of mythology, biblical stories, exile, and his own past. All of these elements combine to present rich metaphors for the 20th century. His mix of techniques and mediums brings a rich and colorful emotional quality to these later works.
