These 22 illustrated cards, constituting the major mysteries of a Tarot de Marseille deck, are the result of a plastic and symbolic study of the color green. They are inspired by divinatory tarots from various origins and periods. The clean graphics and the shapes left white leave a central role to green, used as a real material. In the same process, the back of the cards consists of an ornamental visual made in linocut.

 

"Green plays the role of the elsewhere, of the strangeness, of the fantastic. Why? Because it is an unstable, rebellious color, very difficult to fix chemically. (...) From a philosophical and anthropological point of view , luck and bad luck go together, the wheel of fortune turns. Par excellence, green is the color of indecision, the face of destiny; its strongest symbolism is a game being played (…)."
 

Michel Pastoureau for Télérama:  "Green, at the origins of a rebellious color"
