As fans of this giant of television comedy might expect, Vic Reeves’ art works mix the surreal and the mundane in a seriously amusing way. Ram-raiding disparate sources of contemporary iconography from celebrities to wildlife and explosives, Reeves’ playfully deranged works are held together by their stylistic tact and control. Although Reeves primarily is known as a comedian, he is also gaining a reputation as an artist, having studied at Sir John Cass College in Whitechapel in the mid 1980s. Jake and Dinos Chapman describe Moir’s art as ‘able to command our laughter as a purgative, to encourage the viewer to leak at both ends’.
