Mesmerising, original works by two emerging artists Josh Bashford
Sophie Scott

11 December 2014 to 24 January 2015
Josh Bashford and Sophie Scott both tend towards the monochromatic, a reversed out definition of the image, although in completely different ways. These two young graduates of Ilam (Canterbury) are each making a very distinctive mark - Bashford with his intricate, fluid monoprints on a large scale celebrating nature, birdlife and the otherworldly elephant fish; Scott with paintings made from stencils, hovering at the point where an image forms or dissolves, places recognisable only through shadows or highlights of their landmarks.

The Diversion Gallery exhibits fine art by leading New Zealand contemporary artists, in a stylish gallery on the waterfront in Picton, Marlborough.

We offer paintings, drawings, sculpture and limited edition prints by some of New Zealand’s most collectible fine artists.

The Diversion Gallery also has a selection of jewellery pieces by New Zealand art jewellers.

The gallery is open 12-5pm Wednesday to Saturday, or viewing welcome at other times and days by arrangement – just call or text 0274 408 121. We ship internationally.
