Artist Bio

J McLaughlin is a queer anarcho-bourgeois from Victoria, BC. Their seductively cheerful paintings illuminate the tender murky swamp that blooms between the false hopes of consumer culture/corporate obedience and our own private fears and desires. Text & images stolen from vintage advertising and illustration are layered, distressed & flattened into a single viewing plane. Images are dragged into digital & reworked to the point of pixelated abstraction.
