About me

I am currently a student in Art History at the University of Oxford. I have an eclectic range of artistic interests from the medieval through to postmodernism and enjoy painting, sculpture and architecture. I am now retired after having had careers in mining, water supply and construction. What’s in the White Box is my diary of visits and exhibitions and the occasional comments on current affairs in the Artworld.
