The Enchanted Arcana of Greg Carter depicts a whimsical world bustling with vibrant colors and larger-than-life characters. This exhibition is a multi-part installation illustrating the stories of the Tarot’s most inspired and symbolic cards through bold color interactions and organic forms and prints. Enter this unfamiliar world and experience the enchanting and enigmatic energy of the Major Arcana.
