The artist, writer, and curator Brendan Carroll, co-founder of Agitators Collective, had this to say about the artist's work:
"At first glance, the compositions appear ordered, balanced. On closer inspection, the rectangular bands are not symmetrical, but interspersed and uneven. They refute uniformity. His visual language is drawn from a deadpan observation of the world around him…McGlynn’s work is...about the immediacy of simply looking at stuff..."
Kara Rooney, artist, writer and curator based in New York City has characterized his art as well:
“Tom McGlynn draws upon the grid as a codifier of human sentience, pushing and probing the boundary of language and memory...Utilizing commercial branding and corporate logos along with personal imagery as source material, the artist employs the rectangular motif as vestigial stand-in for what has already occurred- for the accumulated sum of lived experience”
McGlynn is interested in phenomenology, the study of the structures of human consciousness as they are revealed through experiences. By abstracting common contemporary forms, reordering them in a way intended to evoke an emotional response, he is engaging in what he describes as "a form of contemporary realism."
The creation of Station came from an idea that abstraction can be a kind of generic point of transmission, arrival and departure. A mere relay of sorts not dependent upon representational "messages".
