Roman Vaughan-Williams graduated from Newcastle University in 2020 with a BA in Fine Art. He makes artworks that map a landscape of relationships: within the outside world, inside his psyche, and between these two spaces.

Roman’s works are often made up of juxtapositions of material; rusty iron A-frames come up against graphite-covered MDF and trompe l’oeil representations of woodgrain.

What appears like disparate matter is drawn together into visual poems; meditations clustered around particular concerns; Marxism, opium, De-Colonialism, thermodynamics, irony, sincerity, and Feminism. These poems do not explain the world but are maps in a journey of discovery; a journey to escape the impasse of an ‘eternal present’.
