Vashti Johnstone

Vashti Johnstone is a contemporary New Zealand painter, new to Little River Gallery, but not new to exhibiting. Living and working on the South Island’s West Coast she has been a student of visual language forever, formalising her innate need to express and articulate with a Diploma in Painting, Aoraki Polytechnic (2001).

Johnstones’ oeuvre applauds the vitality and importance of making art. Respectful of and roused by the lineage of creators who have gone before her and create alongside her, she pushes her practice in energizing and innovative ways, layering her charcoal and her paints into a colourful language that transcends beyond words.
