After looking through various designs of Tarot decks throughout its long history, we thought it would be interesting to invite a group of contemporary artists to share their interpretations of these mystical cards. Inspired by Carl Rohrig, a German painter renowned for his beautifully crafted deck…imagination is key. Each artist has chosen one of the 21 Major Arcana cards and recreated it based on their skill set and aesthetic.

Work by Bridey Bowen, Alex Chitty, David D’Andrea, Rob Doran, Ryan Duggan, Ron Ewert, Heather Gabel, Horsebites, Myles Smutney Hyde, Damara Kaminecki, Jenny Kendler, Joey Knuckles, Rick Leech, Monique Ligons, Alexis Mackenzie, Kyle James Morrison, Steak Mtn, Rachel Peacock, Bird Reynolds, Christy Roads, J.L. Schnabel and David Snedden.

Curated by Heather Gabel, Myles Smutney Hyde and Anna Cerniglia.
