From The Major Arcana series
Tobias Till’s wonderful latest series of linocut prints, The Major Arcana, consists of 22 hand tinted artworks interpreting the Tarot trump cards, which are collectively known as Major Arcana. Tobias’s decision to create an artwork centred around Tarot derived not from their traditional use in fortune telling, but rather the fact that they have evolved to represent the full spectrum of the human psyche. This gave Tobias a theatrical structure on which to create his own set of characters, in an updated version of the 18th century cards, which also contain the historical narratives and London references for which he has become highly regarded.
