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.
