These large-scale canvases mark a new departure for acclaimed artist Philip Diggle.  Wildly exuberant and expressionistic, they celebrate the human form, colour, and the nature of paint itself, playing with our perceptions of scale and filling the gallery with an almost untamed energy.  There are also drawings and smaller scale works:  overall, the impression is one of power let loose.
