An ongoing series of paintings depicting my personal take on Tarot divination.
The paintings in this series begins with spray paint. A fade is applied to the canvas. Stenciled shapes follow, with an alternate fade applied. The shapes themselves are tweaked doodles. Much like a Tarot reading, they should be stream of consciousness. Allowing the unknown to become known. The tendrils are an homage to Art Nouveau, representing the twists and turns of life. Paint applied directly from the tube curls and twists around the canvas, shaped by a ceramic tool. I've created a series of symbols representing the four suits of the Tarot: Swords, Wands, Cups, and Coins. The major arcana is represented by Roman Numeral. Prior to painting the symbols, I preform a card reading for the painting, focusing on the colors and shapes. One card is chosen from that reading and it's symbols applied to the piece. The painting is then sealed with an epoxy resin.
