These Tarot cards are a reproduction of individually hand-painted works on epoxy-coated steel panels by artist Richard Lewer for the Gertrude Contemporary 2012 Edition entitled the Tarot Card Series.
Comprising all 78 cards in the Tarot, these works continue Lewer's investigations into the extremes of human behaviour. His distinctive expressive painting style engages us in narratives reflecting on good and evil, darkness and light, life and mortality, all seen through his viscerally humorous lens.
In creating the series, Lewer referred to a number of historical precedents including the 15th century Visconti-Sforza deck, one of the earliest surviving examples of Tarot imagery. Here, Lewer found common ground between the narratives that have been central to his oeuvre and in imagery that for centuries has been used to reveal the self and divine the future.
