Judith Kalina

New Paintings

2008 Exhibit Dates
Sep 19 To Oct 16

Travelling with American and European circuses for almost a decade, Judith Kalina uses these experiences as a source for her art. She considers her semi-abstract work to be autobiographical; in addition to the circus imagery, she portrays intimate family moments and her own memories. Each painting has its own narrative, many times an exploration of a forgotten experience that is reinvented in an altogether new way. She attempts to explore the edge between myth and reality, memory and action, feeling and thought. Kalina received her M.F.A. from Brooklyn College. Her work is in various collections including The John & Mabel Ringling Museum of Art, Ringling College of Art and Design, and the Omega Institute.
