WHITE BOX

 

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 each calendar month, 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.

 

WHAT'S ON

 

'Stone'

Recent Sculpture

​MARGARET HIGGINSON

Saturday 4th January to Sunday 26th January

. OPEN 11 am to 6 pm weekends only 

 

Margaret Higginson refuses to see stone as concrete. To her, stone is malleable, like glass. It begs to be touched and twisted. Yet, the texture and surface of her chosen material is restricting by its very nature. It is the site of that push and pull, that sense of confusion and complication, where ‘Convolutions’ is born.

 

What emerges from the contradictions are sculptures that push the limits of form and surface area. To appease the material, Margaret lets the stone reveal itself by carving what is both inside and outside. Again, we see another paradox in the work: the natural stone on the outside competing like a child for attention with the quiet newness of the carving inside.
