Steel Toad

About This Piece

Influenced by nature and modern art, John McLaughlin is an artist based in Michigan (USA). He works in mixed media to explore the two opposing states: logic and emotion. The former appears in sharp, precise designs while the latter emerges through child-like scrawls and thick, textured brushstrokes. By juxtaposing these states, John attempts to liberate himself and his work from a dualist framework. -----Dr. Melissa Westbrook neo-outsiders.com

Artist Statement

John McLaughlin’s paintings and drawings are part of his own lineage of abstraction that has evolved over some twenty five years. McLaughlin’s work has always arisen from an earnest search for resolution in a range of gestures, movements and erasures. The appearance and meaning of the resolution has developed in the meandering progression of the creative process. McLaughlin continues his investigation into the possibilities of the accidental along with the more deliberate forms and lines in both nature and the man made world. The labors are personal, but also come from a place of acutely studied history of art, design and music.
