There's a fleeting, watery quality in some new mirror works, others glittering with gold leaf and silver over oil paint, evoking the cascades of Fiordland, or the moon and planets in a midwinter night sky. Alongside major works are intimate miniatures: 'I like the act of looking at small works - the peering, the bending forward, a precious quality, demanding time.' Each bevelled edge or frame, from decades past, prompts personal memory, the viewer mirrored in the work.
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. Many are acclaimed senior or mid-career artists of national and international repute, and whose work is held in major public galleries and private collections; from time to time we introduce emerging artists of distinctive talent. We also have a small selection by New Zealand fine art jewellers.
Hours: The gallery is open Wednesday – Sunday 11am-4pm, other days and times on request. Closed Monday – Tuesday (except by appointment).
Please contact us to view non-exhibition works from the offsite stockroom.
We ship nationally and internationally.
