The Patron Saint of Pink : Victoria Callinan
mixed media

I am a recent graduate of Fine Art, from Cork, Ireland. Throughout my college years I have developed an interest in researching female identity through modern media such as Instagram and Facebook, and also how women have been represented historically in art. I am most interested in exclusively female circles, especially textile making and domestic crafts.

The concept for these works developed from my research of Zalaegerszeg’s patron saint, Mary Magdalene. For a long time, Magdalene has been referred religiously as the sexualised repentant whore, with much conspiracy surrounding her story. With a figure like Magdalene being canonised and recognised as a saint, I feel she is the most relatable female figure in Christianity, as she has erred and is imperfect. I feel Magdalene is an important icon for modern young women as the media categorizes women as either saintly or sexualised, while Magdalene embodies both. The works I have created here explore this identity of sweetness and sin, through imagery of what the modern woman worships.
