The People's Tarot

This interdisciplinary project includes original collages, a tarot deck and guidebook, two print series, and community events and readings. It will debut in fall 2013 as part of "Tapping the Third Realm" at Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design, and the Laband Gallery, Loyola Marymount University and will then travel to the Hollywood Arts and Culture Center in Florida in the fall of 2014.

I began The People's Tarot as a means of integrating more intuition into what felt like an increasingly analytical practice. I was familiar with the Tarot and have owned four decks over the years. I integrated meditation and research into my collage process and was thrilled to learn more about it throughout.

This artist-led project is designed to put art in your hands, literally, conceptually, and metaphorically. Readers/viewers can add their own intuition to interpreting the cards. In addition, the book, cards, and prints are available for purchcase/collection directly from the artist at accessible rates.

An important part of this project is the communal/social aspect of reading and interpreting cards.
