Artist Statement:

Catherine Wang McMahon (b. 1999, San Francisco, CA, USA) is a visual artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. Their painting style and process draw from traditional Chinese watercolors, vibrant fauvist color palettes, and impressionist techniques. Their approach often involves working from life or taking several reference photos of various plants, landscapes, and details during hikes. They use AI apps, readings, research, and activism to assist in flora and fauna identification, land history & historiography, discussions around indigenous land protection, stewardship, & current climate change movements.
