Much admired art teacher and Artspace’s 2017 Invited Artist, Roma McLaughlin, is an exceptional paper-cut artist and will captivate audiences with her delicate artworks.

With an impressive fusion of Western and Asian art influences, McLaughlin is inspired by patterns in architecture, domestic decor and natural forms. Her intricate artworks, patiently created by hand, feature contoured shapes, patterns, silhouettes and shadows.

McLaughlin’s work is informed by the suburb in which she lives, the bustling and culturally diverse Box Hill. With a constantly evolving landscape of people, languages and culture, her artistic practise boldly reflects her environment.

Roma McLaughlin will host a workshop at Whitehorse Artspace during this exhibition.
