    "What McLaughlin did with these stripped-down tools remains one of the great achievements in 20th century American art. Ignoring accepted rules, his sophisticated paintings pry open perceptual space. Almost surreptitiously, they grab hold of your optical apparatus and undermine conventional habits of seeing."
    -Christopher Knight, Pacific Standard Time: Open your eyes to John McLaughlin, Los Angeles Times, 2 October 2011
