"From 1946 to 1976, John McLaughlin steadily produced some of the most thought-provoking and unique paintings to come out of Southern California during that time. McLaughlin's minimal, geometric abstractions - characterized by clean lines, bold colors, and flat, intersecting forms - investigate symmetry and composition. Underscored by the Japanese concept of ma, the special emptiness between forms, their simple beauty inspires contemplation regarding one's relationship to nature."
