The Tarot means different things to different people. My view is closest to Carl Jung‘s, who saw Tarot cards as images “descended from the archetypes of transformation”.
There is something to be said for visuals that have been around and with us for ages. So many great artists have tried their hand and left with us their visual perceptions of the Tarot: Salvador Dali, H.R. Giger, Hieronymus Bosch. This is my perspective or my take on these eternal cards.
With respect to the archetypes I have endeavored on my own journey. Once I begin to paint, my analytical mind is sort of blurred. I am not sure where exactly the input comes from but painting is, for me, a highly mystical experience and a sort of meditation too. Each card and each painting are a unique adventure, an episode of the journey taken.
I have come across many Tarot decks which are simple illustrations of the card titles, without considering everything each of the cards is and represents. Some decks offer the same ideas as others before them, merely dressing them up. For me there is no point in doing that nor in creating what has already been created. I want my deck to be more. I want each painted card to intuitively transmit the essence. I feel that my method of painting allows me to do that naturally, without force.
