Warholian and Modern Eden Gallery have come together in to present “Tarot: Art of Fortune” a modern day reinterpretation of the classic intuitive “fortune telling” card deck. The show features some of the best emerging names in the gallery scene today as curated by Warholian’s founder Michael Cuffe.
Although it’s roots may seem occult, Tarot was originally developed as a pack of playing cards in 15th century Europe to play French Tarot or Italian Tarocchini. Over time, individuals in the intuitive and early psychic communities began to adopt the cards as use as a tool to “read” an individual and offer spiritual guidance. Today Tarot has become more widely accepted as a way for individuals to ﬁnd direction in the bustle of a modern world. With the availability of decks ranging from artistic to commercial, tarot has become a personalized standard of home libraries everywhere.
For “Tarot: Art of Fortune” we’ve asked some of the top contemporary artists to reimagine their favorite card from a standard deck, into a work of art based on the imagery and symbolism present. “Tarot: Art of Fortune” features an amazing array of established artists that have been individually selected as important ﬁgures in emerging art movements at this time.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and now live and work in San Francisco. Art has always been a passion of mine; I'm trying to show the viewer that beauty can be found in places that we ordinarily wouldn't look.
Most of my work is non-representational due to the abstraction of color, shapes, typography and forms of overlapping textures. Living in San Francisco has had a major impact on my work. Decaying walls, shipyards, industrial sites, and abandoned buildings have all been a big influence. The ageing, rust and marks on these surfaces are what I find fascinating and inspiring.
I tend to walk down by the Piers because I'm always guaranteed to stumble across a surface that will catch my attention. Every time I head out, I'm always carrying my camera. I capture a variety of angles for a variety of compositions. Once I have a strong selection of photography that I can work with, it's back to the studio to start painting.
