The Diaphanous Oracle
These 84 intuitively painted cards have deeply layered imagery with a keyword printed on each one. This deck was born of my own desire to reconnect with my intuition in an organic way after years of feeling lost from my true self. Although I am traditionally an impressionistic type pastel landscape artist, I felt an urgent calling to paint a series of abstracted images starting in 2015, and created this entire series of works instinctively from my dreams and intuition, without reference photos, as a means of discovering how to reconnect with the wounded and lost parts of myself. All of the 84 card images were hand painted by me on tiles, primed boards, wood and bamboo, canvas and paper surfaces using acrylic and alcohol inks, watercolors, oil with cold wax, and pastels, with no digital processes involved.
There is no guidebook, since I felt pulled to allow the images to speak for themselves and prompt their own intuitive messages, guided if desired by the keyword that spoke to me as I painted. There are so many meanings to be discovered within the nuances of each image, and these can vary widely depending on the framing of questions or mindset of the asker, so covering every possibility would require thousands of pages and still leave so many possibilities unspoken. (If you feel no guidebook is a deal-breaker for a deck but you appreciate my artwork, I would suggest simply considering these cards as an affordable collection of prints of my paintings.)
Printed on a 330 GSM superior smooth flexible cardstock with black core, the 3.5-inch square size of these cards fits easily in the hand, and the deck arrives in a 2-piece custom designed keepsake box. This is a limited edition print run, so availability is restricted. This deck will not be reprinted, so once the remaining decks (8 left as of 12/7/2021) are gone, they're gone.
