CORNEAL EDEMA TAROT REVIEW
The Corneal Edema Tarot is an art tarot that celebrates the gothic culture. The images are made up of photos that are posed, then visually edited to be embedded into an ethereal space. These 22 cards have been released in a number of decks.
This deck exudes power. To me, it’s an amazing dual power.
It’s stylized, elegant and Semi-Gothic. It’s dark but not alarming. It hangs by her neck, not her feet. The Fool looks into a dark, arched entrance The threshold is lined with skulls The woman is in awe and adoration. She is adorable. Hermit The Hermit is one of the most beautiful hermits I’ve seen in quite a long time.
CORNEAL EDEMA TAROT CARD DETAILS
John R. Dybowski did two unusual things within his Corneal Edema Tarot. He was aware of the scratched, sepia-tone medium’, and then incorporated an extremely sharp understanding of compositional theories into every frame – and then added little elements that shifted the comfort level a little something that the eyes can’t detect.
This isn’t the super-slick computer graphics type of deck. It’s art. It’s a Tarot. It’s dark. It’s unforgiving. It’s an excellent work of art.
