  • 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.

  • Helen Bayly works and resides in San Francisco, where in 2001 she originally came to study painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. Her artwork explores contemporary topics through stylized mythological and religious imagery, primarily painted with monochromatic ink on large scale paper. Influenced by classical imagery used in the foundation of Western Art, Bayly enjoys the spectrum of drama and the epic nature of the human experience. Through her art she writes her unique saga borrowing classical imagery to express her relationship with the modern Californian youth culture.

    With goals to become a full time Gallery Artist, Bayly has shown her work largely in the San Francisco Bay Area, completing Solo Exhibitions the past two years as well as a showing in group exhibitions for the past seven years. She has worked with a number of institutions such as 111 Minna Gallery, Lopo Gallery, 5 Claude Lane Gallery, The Medicine Agency, The California Academy of Sciences, The San Francisco Arts Commission, Space Gallery, Yerba Buena Community District, The Cartoon Art Museum, Shooting Gallery, Project One Gallery, SOMA Arts, Gallery Heist, Driftwood Gallery and Modern Eden Gallery, with write ups by Warholian and Hi-Fructose.com. ~Via Stealing Feeling
