Saint Calluna Bio

 
 

Saint Calluna is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in New Jersey. Her work has been exhibited in galleries across the United States, and  featured in the gallery shows Never Think Small: Redux, juried by Zeina Assaf, and Putting-It-All-Together, juried by Jonathan Talbot. She has battled various physical and mental ailments over the past few years, resulting in a stronger resolve to delve deeper into these issues as part of the imaginative process. Calluna’s creations include multimedia collages, reliquaries and sculpture, incorporating photography, illustration, as well as found objects, paint and pigment. Her current collage series, “The Picture of Health: Physical and Mental Illness as Self-Portraits” combines these techniques to depict her own struggle against illness, and against the taboos and stigmas society places on the ill.
