Ardis Harsche, an Indianapolis community artist, describes her work as “Paleolithic.” She recreates that era’s cave wall as her canvas, using a beeswax medium called encaustic, working with oil and earth pigments to create embedded images reminiscent of early cave drawings.
Her work may also be treated to layers of embedded sand or other natural materials to provide texture and invite the touch of the viewer. Some of the work is left free of representational figures of any sort, since the “cave wall canvas” itself is so full of depth and fascinating to look at.
Ms Harsche is well-respected among Indianapolis artists. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Herron School of Art and has also been an Indianapolis art instructor at various art schools in Indianapolis. Currently, she teaches oil painting to intimate sized classes.
