The crazy collage creations of art collective HYSTERIA are taking centre stage alongside the work of Jeffrey Disaster at celebrated patisserie slash gallery Maison Bertaux right now, and the all-girl group (Collagism, Aida Wilde and Shuby) has detonated a visual explosion that showers colour all over the place and sends limbs flying everywhere.
There are fragments of food and shards of sexual shrapnel littered across the HYSTERIA canvases, which are also shot through with other references to gender, nature, religion and John Wayne. In contrast to the bonkers bunnies and bananas of HYSTERIA, Jeffrey Disaster has himself pulled together, and his thoughtful paintings and montages offer a chance to meditate a little over a slice of cake. He has also assembled a collection of Victorian ephemera and found objects to muse over. Put the two complimentary styles together and you have something that’s really worth sinking your teeth into. The double layered gateau of a show – presented by Hooligan Art Dealer – is running at 28 Greek Street, in London’s Soho neighbourhood; catch Jeffrey Disaster until 6 April, and HYSTERIA until 15 June.
