Who We Are
ABOUT THE GALLERY
White Box is a community art gallery space for selected artists to show their work. It is intended as a focus of interest for the people of Blackheath and for the wider world of art enthusiasts. We select a broad spectrum of art practices, something different from exhibition to exhibition, by committed artists. Prints, sculpture, painting, ceramics, performance and photographic works have all been hosted at White Box. The Gallery is run by Frances and Graham High who are themselves practising artists.

Sinclair writes: printmaking practice often asks questions of the art form, such as ‘when is a print finished?’ and ‘is a print the only possible outcome'? For example, I sometimes include post-print embellishments, such as sewing threads into the paper surface, or folding the print into sculptural forms. My largely abstract and textured images are made from plates created from everyday materials such as fabric edgings, acrylic gels and floor tile adhesive.
The plates are often deliberately fragile – surface elements may loosen after a few impressions, altering details in the image and contributing to the creation of truly unique prints. I often include in-print and post-print embellishments, such as chine collé and threads sewn into the surface of the printed paper.
Although I produce some figurative work, the vast majority is abstract, because I am more interested in texture, form and the overall visual power of my imagery than in direct reflections of nature
