Nana Bagdavadze

Nana Bagdavadze is widely known for her paintings of symbolic DNA molecule structures as well as for her figurative art and portraiture. “Made of two spirals, moving opposite directions, with ladder-like steps made of four bases, ‘A – T’, and ‘G – C,’ DNA is a ‘text,’ containing the universal memory of organic life. The tiny building block that makes us all the same and yet, paradoxically grants us distinct individuality… Like the DNA ladder, Arts and Science have evolved together by influencing and feeding off each other throughout the history. In my work, Double Helix represents a symbol of life and a force of perpetual rebirth and healing,” she says.
