Arcana “the Secrets”

Arcana “the Secrets” is a 22-piece tarot recreation series, which sets out to give one of our oldest forms of divination a face-lift. The 22 Major Arcana cards found in a tarot deck are the foundational cards and are the most fated of all the cards within the deck. The cards in this exhibition seek to form a relationship with the viewer through interpretation and connect with them on an experiential level. I am interested in how 22 cards can connect us with the universe and with each other, for the outcomes of a tarot reading are not preordained by our age, class, race, or gender. We are each dealt unique sequences and combinations of events and fortunes, which in turn give us the illusion of disparity, yet our individual story-lines are being drafted on the same principles.
