The Art of Karyn Crisis

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Dark poetics converge with the arcane symbology of the tarot in artist Karyn Crisis’ solo exhibition, ‘The Major Arcana’ opening at SR2 Gallery in San Francisco October 1st. The poignant works portray a more ritualistic, intense version of the tarot, freckled with natural elements such as bone, feather and crystal that contrast with swords and the sharpness of the modern studded and buckled clothing. Casting witchy females in the roles typically associated with men in the tarot, the intense portraits border on terror, exploring the mysterious depths of the shadowy side of the psyche.
