Sinclair's current style was birthed by curiosity and an experimentation of two of his favourite artistic practices: sculpting and drawing. The discovery of string art as a medium gave him a way to merge both artistic techniques.
Engaging in art experimentation from an early age, Tammy Sinclair always had the drive to create art while exploring topics of racism and identity, rewriting the black narrative and highlighting the need for unity.
Sinclair’s work is centered around the subject of black identity. In his words “The fragility of a single thread points at our weakness when we chose to stand alone. The layering of thread on thread almost seems to wax an impenetrable fortress which points at our strength if we all stand together.”
“With my art I speak on our hopes, our strength and our beauty as a people, it is also a means to rewrite the black narrative, retell black history, and highlight our need for unity... Like the African proverb that says, “The strength of the broom lies not in the power of a single frond but in the resilience of its united fronds.”
