John Duffin: Exhibition 29th November 2012

John Duffin’s first one man show at Catto Gallery features a series of 24 small oil paintings of London from Soho to Hampstead via Battersea and Camden Town. Complimenting this series are a suite of London etchings and several larger oil paintings, all depicting city life as viewed through his unique vision of urban life.

Working from drawings and paintings made on the streets he has fashioned a body of work that has links to Hopper, Sickert and Lowry but his rain covered streets, neon lights and dynamic eye for urban composition make his work distinctively original.

Duffin was recently awarded, “Most outstanding Print Award,” in London for one of his etchings by Sir peter Blake RA and Mark Brown, Guardian Arts Correspondent, writes, “…Duffin Is a rising star. His rich and vibrant paintings are quite simply things of beauty.”

Duffin’s work is in many public collections, including Museum of London, Ashmolean Museum Oxford, Arts Council Collection and his etchings regularly sell out at The Royal Academy Summer Show. This exhibition is a chance to see intimate small scale works by this dynamic painter and printmaker of the contemporary metropolitan city.
