Indigo’s Enchanted Forest

The Street Artist Returns to the Woods of Her Youth, Art in Hand

Vancouver based Street Artist Indigo works in emotion and poetry, and recently, the woods. Raised in a log cabin by artists and activists, Indigo knew the forest long before she knew fat caps and she returns to the childhood playground for this new series. A lifetime dancer who studies the human form, Indigo installs these languid pagan princesses among the mossy columns of the deep timber thicket. As a collection, they summon an enchanted forest in a way that most visitors have never seen.

With these new muses placed into this natural context our perception of public art hikes into unusual territory. With Indigo as the tour guide, the trip is more than a little magic.

This week Indigo is proud to present a group show she has curated with other artists who have worked in the Street Art and Graffiti scenes and whose work she admires for “Unintended Calculations” at the Becker Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver. The high caliber crew includes Augustine Kofie from Los Angeles, Jerry Inscoe from Portland, Remi/Rough from London and local Vancouver talent Scott Sueme.

Indigo spoke to BSA about her work and why she’s run to the woods for a while;

“What interests me is the idea of taking street art out of its usual locations, into spaces that are less populated – so that if the work is by chance seen in the flesh by human eyes, the experience for that one person becomes something intensely personal. We all expect to see street art in cities, alleys, on rooftops and billboards and walls. It’s been done, and I am searching for something that speaks to me – and potentially to others – on a deeper level.

As a child, the forest was my home, and I spent most of my days dreaming of elves and faeries hiding among the trees. After living in the city for over a decade, I think that part of me is trying to rediscover that sense of wonder – to find a connection to the old magic that still exists in places people rarely tread”

Curated by Indigo, Unintended Calculations brings together a group of internationally renowned artists – Augustine Kofie (LA), Jerry Inscoe (PDX), Remi/Rough (LDN) and Scott Sueme (VAN) – for an exhibition at Becker Galleries and two collaborative murals at Moda Hotel exploring four very different approaches to abstraction. Working in a variety of mediums, these artists have evolved the letter form building blocks of their shared graffiti background, deconstructing and rebuilding them as compositions of color, line, shape and movement.
