San Diego native, Ginger Rosser cites her twenty-five years experience as an artist’s figure model and gives credit to Betty Edward’s book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” as the foundation of her art education. From Art Center in Pasadena to the University of Pennsylvania, Ginger paid attention during class while working for such distinguished professionals as Eleanor Antin, Parrietta Hester, Sebastian Cappella and James Hubble. As a result, she found enjoyment in figure drawing with charcoal and discovered her talent for life sculpting in clay.
Initially used as a form of art therapy, Ginger’s creates her “Retro-Feminist” colleges in a free association/stream of consciousness style, using images and text from vintage magazines to convey her feelings. Her art questions traditional gender roles and comments on the use of print media and advertising to perpetuate gender stereotypes in western society.
A product of the 1970’s Feminist Movement and a background in Pyschology, Physical Education, Poetry and Performance Art.
Ginger received her Museum Studies Certificate in 2009 and spent three years working at the former San Diego Women’s History Museum.
She admires the work of Alphonse Mucha and M.C. Escher. Ginger is one of the origional members of the San Diego F.I.G. (Feminist Image Group), a member of the San Diego History Center and Friends of Balboa Park.
