Reflecting on the concept of DNA as a code of life, Ginn explores the idea of drawing as code. Her multimedia installation reveals the process of repetition and mutation, by which drawing is recoded into sculpture, sculpture into drawing, drawing into video, and installation into photography. As a former scientist who left a medical career for art, Ginn is transfixed by artistic expression, but still interested in scientific questions: How does evolution work? How does life diversify and perfect its forms? Why do biological systems act mathematically?
Originally an MD from Belgrade, Serbia, Ginn received an MFA in Sculpture in 2013 with a Savannah College of Art and Design Honors Graduate Scholarship. Her work and writings on the connections between art, mathematics, and biology have been presented and published in the US, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Berlin. She is currently a resident studio artist at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.
This exhibition is sponsored by Helen C. Griffith and Nancy Hooff

The Swan Coach House Gallery and The Forward Arts Foundation are pleased to present Terra Flora, an exhibition by artist Pam Rogers, whose nature-based work is strongly influenced by Botanical Illustration, Art History and Anthropology. Paintings, drawings, sculpture and installation of botanic imagery are conceptually based on the deconstruction of relationships, events, and personal moments. In this examination of the relationships between people, plants, and place she strives to weave the strings of art and agriculture, myth and magic, and healing and hurting into an inquisitive organic whole.
Pam has a BA in Art History from Wellesley College and an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta. She holds a certificate in Botanical Illustration through a program based in Kew Gardens, England. Pam currently works as an independent illustrator on various projects for the Anthropology Dept of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
