Claire McLaughlin

Paper Collage
This artist is open to commissions.
Claire McLaughlin has been making her three dimensional cardstock structures since 2019. Based in Sheffield, Claire studied at Psalter Lane Art College before beginning a career in packaging design. Under the guise of Layered By Claire, her art combines professional cardboard engineering expertise with an eye for natural and man made forms which can be rendered in this medium. The work combines her love of design and problem solving. Recreating fine detail using cut card requires the layers to be arranged in a counter-intuitive sequence. It also necessitates experimentation with perspective; the pieces reveal different facets when viewed from different angles. They often subvert a conventional representation of depth. Claire enjoys pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with her technique. From early pieces using three or four layers, most recent work uses at least nine. Current commissions incorporate additional materials such as tiger thread and reflective foil. Claire is inspired by Sheffield and her subjects are often the city's architecture, wildlife and people.
