The Four of Wands is an evolving paper installation which is modified in scale and
orientation depending on the space it inhabits.
Comprised of an expanding collection of cut paper works, each installation of the 4 of Wands is different, with arrangment, orientation,composition and content varying. Both the front and back surfaces of the paperelements are covered with patterns or illustrations referencing (among other things ) classical art, occult imagery, and heraldic traditions.
The title of this instalation references a card found in the Rider-Waite Tarot Card Deck. Both historical and mystic in nature, the tarot can be understood on many levels. Each of the 78 cards in a deck has an interpretive meaning, which in turn, is synthesized by the presence of other cards presented during a "reading" Similarly, each assembly of the installation offers opportunities for new arrangments of imagery and new interpretaions of those arrangments.
