OPENING Sunday 1.9.18 6pm-8pm
This weekend, artists Heathcliff Sheridan, Kay Orchison and Tommie Kelly each bring their own distinctive interpretations to the ancient art of Tarot.
On the evening of this Sunday 1st of September, please join us between 6pm and 8pm at Mothership Studios for the launch of The Jigsaw Tarot, The Kitchen Sink Oracle and a celebration of the Forty Servants Deck.
Heathcliff Sheridan is a visual artist and practicing Wiccan.
The Jigsaw Tarot is based in his long-standing collage practice. It focuses on the use of found images to describe the nature of the Major and Minor Arcana in a minimalist modality.
His oblique symbolism demands a clarity of purpose in the reader and his textural use of photocopying and tearing distances the deck from traditional overly-prescriptive detailed illustration.
Kay Orchison is a multidisciplinary artist and accidental psychogeographer.
The Kitchen Sink Oracle is a cardification of the divinatory practice his friends insist on describing as Trashomancy: he collects things from the gutter and thinks it means stuff.
Using pareidolia and free association to read random objects as symbols and making “sentences” out of them as metaphors for possibilities distracts the mind from overthinking and allows you to surf the waves of emergent probabilities.
Art, dreams, magic and childhood all share a neurological origin aft of the frontal lobes and these cards are a portable method of tapping into that without having to walk 10km a day and collect icky things with your actual fingers.
Tommie Kelly (Ireland) is an artist and writer.
His popular magick blog Adventures in Woo Woo also features his painting and photographic work. The Forty Servants is a 40 card Oracle Deck that can be used as a Divination system and a Magical system.
Like other Oracle Card Decks, it can be easily used for Divination to gain insight on problems at hand, discover insights from the past, or look somewhat into the future.
However, unlike most other Oracle Decks it has a second purpose -a Magical purpose. The 40 Characters of the Deck can also be used as Servitors (Or Servants/ Powers/ Energies/ Archetypes) to get you more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
Exhibition continues until Saturday 7th September, by appointment only. Please call Kay on 0487 440 886 for more info.
