Indigene Theresa Gaskin
“Indigene” Theresa Gaskin was born in New York City in 1959, the first generation born in the United States, from parents hailing from Trinidad and St. Vincent. She has been a resident of the Greater Philadelphia Area for over twenty years. Indigene is a visual artist who seeks to capture lost legacies, personal stories and silenced voices in her work. Through her painting, she explores the common threads that exist among the world of women through myths, traditions, spirituality and dreams. Indigene has exhibited internationally as well as regionally. She has been an arts educator since 2002, and has worked with various communities teaching art to the young and the elderly.
Artist Statement: “My imagery communicates a personal interpretation of archetypal imagery. I am inspired and fascinated by the myths, histories, spirituality, cultures and different traditions of women around the world. My unique stylized way of creating art comes through in every piece.”
