Indigo Carlton - Artist, Dreamer, Risk Taker
Indigo Carlton is a self-taught artist inspired by the depths of the personal and collective unconscious. Images emerge from layers of color and texture to express subject matter both other-worldly and mysterious, providing something familiar and strange, ancient and new.
She works primarily with acrylics on canvas and altered books, occasionally venturing into clay figurines. Her process is an intuitive one, a dance of emotions, of experience, and of ancient memories.
Her paintings and creations provide a journey - an adventure - and the finished pieces are not a final ending place ~ they are just the beginning. Each viewer will have their own unique interaction with the images. Perhaps recognition of something familiar, or recollections of distant memories, where insights are gained, stories remembered, and the future glimpsed ~ if only for a moment.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, she currently paints from her studio in the Sierra Foothills of northern California.
