Helge Reumann... Crash-Normal (2006, Gouache on wood). From Elvis Studio - works by Helge Reumann and Xavier Robel at Adam Baumgold Gallery in New York. "...Adam Baumgold Gallery presents the inaugural exhibition of Elvis Studio (Helge Reumann + Xavier Robel) from October 18 - December 1, 2007. The exhibition will feature drawings and also works on paper, sketchbooks, paintings, artists’ toys, prints, posters and record covers by the enigmatic Swiss (Geneva) artists Helge Reumann and Xavier Robel, who have done collaborative work as Elvis Studio since 1996.
Included in the exhibition will be Elvis Studio’s epic drawing 'Elvis Road,' 2001, a one foot by thirty foot scroll drawing of a dense, hypnotic, fantastical metropolis. This drawing was executed spontaneously and alternately by Reumann and Robel over a one year period, and reveals 'hundreds of mini-narratives with armed maniacs, rampaging crowds, chaotic policemen, overflowing hospitals, a forest of literal tree-huggers, and hordes of shoppers.' A new accordion-style book reproducing the Elvis Road drawing was released this year by Buenaventura Press."
