Framed by fragility, impermanence, and possibility, Christina Conklin’s artwork and writing consider our cultural responses to the compounding ecological and social crises of our time. She has an MFA from California College of the Arts, and her book on climate change in the ocean, The Atlas of Disappearing Places: Our Coasts and Oceans in the Climate Crisis (The New Press) was published in 2021. Illustrated throughout with ink-on-dried seaweed maps, she used algae to translate current science into tissue-thin paintings of vulnerability and change. Right now she is mostly thinking about the transformative power of fire in both internal and ecological contexts, and is working with thought leaders, artists, and activists to grow regenerative cultural systems. She lives with her husband and two children in Half Moon Bay, California.
