Galerie Eva Presenhuber is pleased to present a new solo exhibition with the Viennese artist Tobias Pils. After presentations in Zurich, New York, and Antiparos, this is the gallery’s fourth solo exhibition with the artist.

In the exhibition Adam & Eve, Pils shows six new paintings of different formats and six ink-on-paper drawings, all of the same size (115 x 83 cm), which accompany the paintings. The works are centered on the motif of a couple under an apple tree. However, the title Adam & Eve was chosen after their completion and does not necessarily imply a framing within cultural history. It is rather a way of making this association tenuous; to make space for the uncertainties the artistic process comes with. By naming an obvious interpretation in the title, it becomes less significant.
