Different options per post type in WP_Query


I have two post types (type-A and type-B) and two taxonomies (tax-1 and tax-2), both assigned to each post type. This means that posts from type-A can contain terms from tax-1 and tax-2 and posts from type-B can also contain terms from tax-1 and tax-2.

I want my WP_Query to output all posts from type-A that contain certain terms of tax-1. But I don’t want to output type-B posts that contain these tax-1 terms, which my WP_Query unfortunately does. The same should apply to tax-2, whereby only posts from type-B that contain terms from tax-2 should be output.

I have already tried to create two $args for this, but I did not manage to merge the two $args.

function my_function($args) {
    global $post;

    $args = array(
            'post_type' => array('type-A','type-B'),
            'orderby'   => array('relevance' => 'ASC', 'type' => 'DESC'),
            'tax_query' => array(
                'relation'  => 'OR',
                    'taxonomy' => 'tax-1',
                    'field'    => 'term_id',
                    'terms'    => array('11','12','13'),
                    'taxonomy' => 'tax-2',
                    'field'    => 'term_id',
                    'terms'    => array('21','22','23'),

    return $args;
