ABSTRACT artwork from a leading artist has gone on display at Hornsey Library gallery.
Philip Diggle, who lives in Haringey, has exhibited in the Rockefeller Centre and Chase Manhattan HQ in New York, as well as other galleries and private collections around the world.
His latest large-scale work, There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed A Fly, is available to see at the library in Crouch End until Thursday August 24.
His work has been described as "exuberant, fun loving, easy on the eye, rippling with bright colour, dancing with Pollock drips and smears".

The artist emerged with the punk movement in Manchester, where he painted on stage in working men's clubs, accompanied by his guitarist brother Steve, a founding member of the Buzzcocks.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, a vast Diggle canvas looked down on revellers at the legendary Hacienda club, and his work is featured in the film 24 Hour Party People.
