Tap image to pause / resume, swipe to advance
I started this project while I was studying for my degree, as an exercise in thinking conceptually within a defined structure (rather like a sonnet or a haiku). Each image is created as a concept that fitted my worldview.
And each image is intentionally different in technique.
I'm probably going to rework some of them, as more developed ideas (or images) fit the framework.
In retrospect, the completion of my degree - in 2016, days before the Brexit vote - saw some of the most disturbing events (for Western democracy) since the end of WWII.
While I've drawn on the traditions (and motifs) of the Tarot, I've not felt bound by them, and am trying to relate the concepts to contemporary life (specifically, my own). Some are personal, some are more general.
There are two approaches to the Tarot.
The first views the Major Arcana as a spriritual life progression, to be mastered as a sequence towards enlightenment.
I take the other approach, looking on the cards as representing (in modern terms) Jungian archetypes.
As such, they represent tools for meditation or a route to self-knowledge.
In the event, I only finished a few of the cards (my major project toook over), but have added sporadically to them since.
My own ambitions are more limited - I'm restricting myself to the Major Arcana.
