About the Artwork

Cathleen Mahan

About the artist: 

Cathleen Mahan is a contemporary visual artist and a former critical-care nurse. She maintains an active studio practice in Portland, Maine. “Putting pencil to paper or hands to clay is, for me, a doorway into a nonverbal world outside of time that offers deep healing and balance. It is also where I feel most alive.”

About the artwork:

“Brought to tears by the change-of-shift report describing the circumstance of this young boy’s traumatic injuries, I struggled to enter his ICU room. He, on the other hand, was busy trying to find out if the EKG tracing would still register if he moved an electrode to his head. It did.”
