The Tarot Paintings by Jason Robert Bell 1996-7, painted in Chicago over a ten month period. Each is 6 feet tall by 5 feet wide- oil, acrylic, and ink on unstretched canvas. These paintings are based on the major arcana (the first 22 cards of the tarot). My main source information on the Tarot was the writings of A.E. Waite. His summary of the Tarot best sums up my goals in making these paintings- The Tarot embodies symbolical presentations of universal ideas, behind which all the implicits of the human mind,and it is in this sense that they contain serect doctrine, which is the realization by the few of truths embedded in the consciousness of all.- click the below thumbnails for a larger slide show view.- return
