Oracle Cards Part 1
14 ABSTRACT BEINGS
Insight + Wisdom
A few years ago I began pondering on the idea to create my very own oracle. Inspired by so many artists and in particular by the Faerie Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica Macbeth. I was given the set as a gift age 16 by my mother. This was over 20 years ago now. All these years later, I still go to them for readings when in doubt or confusion. I simply believe and adore the faeire folk.
Once I began to work on the first group which is presently named,‘Royals’ in pencil and ‘Abstract Beings’ in collage, I realised the process of divination could take much longer than I first anticipated. The casting of the cards flowed as with a compass. I felt at ease. I wanted to create intuitively and openly and without self judgement.
So far, 14 Abstracts and 12 Royals of the 72 have emerged.
A white light background, symbolising an awakening. The grand shapes were made by selecting from beautiful fashion copy prints.
The meaning of each card is revealed in short at this time. A book shall accompany the 72 cards once the work has been fully realised.
