ARF's new work at the Catto Gallery's Christmas show in Hampstead

If you are in or around London this December, pop into The Catto Gallery in Hampstead, where I'll be participating in a Christmas show in conjunction with The Horsebox Gallery. 

It's a beautiful space with a roaring fire and fun and friendly staff - the perfect place to come and escape the hell of Xmas shopping, warm yourselves and enjoy some great artwork.

My large painting of 'Magdalena' (a cropped image of which is shown above) as well as two new charcoals: 'The Rat Catcher' and 'The Tenant' will be on display and are well worth seeing in the flesh. 

The private view is on Thursday 1st December, 6-9 pm. Please contact www.cattogallery.co.uk if you would like to attend.
