The Kim McCarty watercolor portraits have been deliberately made in the image of Generation Y members. Through the artists mixture of yellow, blue, red and green shades, she brings to life an age group that is at times characterized by uncertainty, ambivalence and anxiety.

In addition to the many issues that are evidently at play in McCarty's work, the sheer beauty of her paintings are also visually enthralling. The images showcase how stunning a lack of precision can be as the colors bleed into one another in a haphazard manner.

There are evidently many themes at play in this creative series. McCarty thus proves that art can be used as a mouthpiece for critical and time-specific issues.
