Outrageous Fortune…..

I went to visit ‘Outrageous Fortune’  a Tarot art exhibition  at Exeter’s Phoenix Art Centre today……  an interesting exhibition with a very wide range of interpretation.

( The Marseille Tarot deck and the High Priestess interpretation)

The exhibition showcases contemporary artists’ interpretations of the classic Tarot de Marseille deck of cards.  A rich source of imagery, it includes such archetypes as The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, The Lovers, The Wheel of Fortune, The Hanged Man and Death. For this project, seventy-eight artists, whose work encompasses a variety of formal, conceptual, expressionist, literary or design-based approaches, have been asked to create a card for a contemporary tarot pack. Each artist has been drawn a card randomly, and invited to reinterpret it in their own way while working to a prescribed size and format.
