NIGHT 284 – THE STORY OF THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE CLEANER AND THE LADY

8/1001

THE PRECIOUS CARGO

Latest instalment in Tarot series

For Caspian, the 1001 Nights, a thousand nights and a night of artworks, paintings and stories. A baby, then a toddler and now a child, they grow fast and this has also been encapsulated in the initial images in the series.

For Kashi, the Tarot, wrapped up during pregnancy in the 1001 Nights as a single night, a story within that story with its own rabbit warren of stories – for me the Tarot is a journey through life, from the childlike Fool travelling through the Major Arcana to eventually gain the World. Part of, not separate to, the main story, yet equally a standalone work in itself, the Tarot tangent is a kind of marginalia – justly important and without which the main story would not be as deliciously rich.

The Precious Cargo is not part of the Major Arcana. I am expanding the idea of the Major Arcana to include other archetypes and motifs. All part of the all-encompassing story of life as it unfolds just like the tales of the 1001 Nights ~
