Russell West's intensely coloured, dripping paint artworks draw the eye into a three-dimensional labyrinth of layers and hollows, colours and patterns. He allows the work, in part, to be defined by the natural effects of gravity and the serendipitous movement of the paint.
Marie Curie fundraiser
Royal Academy Summer Exhibition
On Tuesday 11th July, Catto Gallery attended the Marie Curie charity fundraising evening at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. It was a wonderful evening and good to meet up with some old friends: our artist Clive McCartney who had donated one of his paintings to be sold in the silent auction; and old friend and huge talent Ken Howard.
Stefan Almers - David Bowie photographs
"At the edge of the stage with David Bowie"
After 40 years, Stefan Almers found nine of his previously unseen and intimate photographs of David Bowie live on stage in 1976. Catto Gallery will be showing them throughout August.
The Brotherhood of Ruralists is regarded as one of the most important English art movements of the 20th century. One of its founders Annie Ovenden opens her new exhibition at the gallery on 11th May running until 29th May.
Ham & High - Katy Sullivan
As publicised in the Ham & High (our local paper) today, painter Katy Sullivan's first show at Catto Gallery starts on 11th May. Katy's paintings cleverly combine elements such as the innocence of children, nostalgic memories and the mystery of nature. Katy gained some notable success when her second ever painting was included in the 2008 Holburne portrait exhibition. Katy's exhibition runs until 29th May.View exhibition
