The Fool | INFERNO Tarot Card Sticker
+ Madness; extravagance; spark of an idea; the breath before inspiration
– Apathy, carelessness, or rash behavior; expectations can breed resentment; poor planning, lack of perseverance; better starter than finisher
The Fool is as much an illustration of hope as it is a manifestation of the creative spark and potential. It’s reckless but beautiful. It’s falling without a net and without a care.
However, within the context of this deck the Fool is also about purging fear. CULT was born of my desire to express a number of ideas about gender roles and to come out as a queer woman in a self-made space where I felt comfortable. My hesitation comes from not feeling “queer enough”. After seeing other people discuss this topic, I chose to use my work to talk about who I am, the world as I see it, and the hope I have for the future. Prepared for the worst but fearless.
INFERNO deck is a mixture of equal parts of Dante's Inferno and processing 2020—the year of Hell on Earth. Dante's journey from the darkest depths was one that led him through immense challenges but on to a better understanding of himself and his ability to survive. I'm hoping for the same for all of us.
