Andres Lutz and Anders Guggisberg have been delighting us as a pair for more than a decade. They draw on a tremendous variety of sources for their inspiration. The delicious blend of art history, humor and ecological concerns inform the content with a rich subjective mythology.

Consider, for a moment, the challenges of collaborating on a visual level. Without even consulting “the other,” creative roadblocks are already being built. So it is a rare case when two talented individuals can put aside petty jealousy and even shame to risk a venture for our benefit. For their share, the duo take away new understandings of how art develops singly and evolves over time. The third mind that takes responsibility for these pieces is unlike anyone you will ever meet.
