Artist Profile: Judith Kalina
Judith Kalina, artist and writer, was born and raised in New York City. Primarily a painter, Kalina is also a collagist, a poet, a published author and teacher. Lately she has been creating works that combine text and image, a process that allows her to discover unpredictable connections and new meaning. Her work has been exhibited widely and is in many public and private collections including the Ringling School of Art and Design and other institutions. With mixed media as her current focus, she is now exhibiting collages at the Cornelia Street Cafe in the West Village (up until July 28, thereafter can be seen in her studio) where, as director of art and creativity workshops, she is planning a series of events to stir and inspire the creative soul. Over the coming year, Kalina plans to create a series of collage combined with journal entries in order to illuminate mothers in the Bible. In the midst of her busy life, she maintains her sanity and playfulness by working in her New York studio and occasionally traveling with the circus.
