Indigene Art Forms is the website of artist Theresa “Indigene” Gaskin.
“Where the black and white forms of life are painted in vivid color!”
Each painting begins as a graphite drawing with soft gradations of light and dark. From the drawing, the composition is built upon with many sheer layers of color washes and pure pigment.
Traditional media is used, such as graphite, vine charcoal, powdered earth pigments, a variety of inks, watercolor, acrylics and sometimes, handmade oil formulas. Natural elements are preferred for their practical applications as well as for their metaphysical properties.
This process produces paintings that are rich and vibrant in color with an illuminating quality.
