The Witches Tarot is a fine art project by artist Chris Madsen. This Major Arcana deck is a beautiful and emotional work dedicated to the darker aesthetic. Creating an artistic tarot has long been an aspiration of mine, as my art lends itself well to such a project. However, as a full time artist traveling the country and participating in fine art shows and art festivals, finding the time to dedicate to such a large project has been a challenge. Now, with the onset of the Covid-19 virus, and stay-at-home initiative, the entire festival circuit is shut down for the time being. As such, I chose to use this time for the creation of the Witch’s Tarot Deck.
The Witches Tarot is a strong feminine deck with only one male card—a self portrait represented in this collection as The Fool. The deck is a dark, emotional journey of goddess and witch that brings your visions and path to light. I have included 4 additional cards to the deck that bring the underlying theme of feminine power to life: The Maiden, The Mother, The Crone, and Coven. These new archetypes add additional opportunities for the reader. There are also additional cards that may be printed if the stretch goals are made.
I believe great art inspires feeling, memories, and emotion. My work is a blend of photography and mixed media digital art focused on feminine beauty and power. This deck is the result of many years laboring over the love of the craft. The entire Major Arcana has been laid out, a box has been designed, a booklet created. I am now asking for your help in bringing this project to life.
