McLaughlin is not connected to the world of “high art”; rather he is on the periphery. He has developed his style of art over a period of decades, observing the things that surround him in his semi-rural environment: “Most of my work is derived from nature with the human interaction, filtered through my imagination.” His artwork, then, directly reflects the suburban in-between life, with the detritus of human activity mingled with the natural world. This interaction is sensed He says that his pieces have a definite meaning for him, but also that the meaning may be something entirely different for someone else.
His paintings often start with a solid cream-colored background, making the larger backdrop similar to the paper surfaces he uses for the collages. He then draws and marks on the canvases.
