The Magician is card #1 in Tarot’s Major Arcana, the beginning of the journey. At his right is a wand pointed to the sky, at his left is a sword pointed to the Earth: the Mage acts as a bridge between the worlds of matter and spirit.
Liminal zones between life and death, sleeping and waking, the known and the unknown, are powerful places I return to over and over, revisiting shadow lands filled with fertile gardens of imagination.
The Magician wears the symbol of eternity on his brow, indicating he is not of this time but of all time. The Magician takes the power of the Universe and roots it in the Earth, where it can be accessed by all. The message of the Magician is to tap into one’s full potential for change and growth.
The Magician is 24″ x 18″ oil on canvas.
