Purchase The Fool Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print on 310gsm Fine Art Paper by Beau Stanton graffiti street artist modern pop art. "The Fool was the central piece from my Arcane Archetypes exhibition where all the paintings were based on images from the Major Arcana of the Tarot. My first intention with this body of work was to create a series of images that instill a lasting imprint into the viewer’s subconscious. As an initial point of departure I started to research one of the most recognizable and iconic sets of images, the Major Arcana of the Tarot. After studying several existing decks, I discovered that some of the images shared common ground visually and conceptually with several paintings I had created in the past.When I first thought about making a series of paintings based on images from the Tarot, I knew that I would have to include the Fool since it is the “zero” card and an extremely important archetype in the set. I started by researching all of the iconic tarot decks to see the ways the symbols had been interpreted in the past along with reading a few books by 19th Century occultists who were really into tarot. From there I applied some of my own symbols that I often use in my work that had common ground with the overall significance of The Fool to concoct a fresh take on an ancient iconic symbol." - Beau Stanton
Purchase Genesis Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 310gsm Fine Art Paper by Beau Stanton graffiti street artist modern pop art. "This piece was the central panel of a large triptych that made up the centerpiece of my Cartography of the Machine show. All of the work in the exhibition utilized some form of visual exposition to convey the narrative such as exploded views, cutaways, etc. These three paintings all correspond horizontally with elements from each stratified layer continuing into the next painting. I’ve created images before that reference the stratified layers of history, but this image takes the concept in a different direction. A great tree of life blossoming out of the fertile ground made up of designs and ornaments from different time periods and cultures as well as a layer of dinosaur fossils and Greek sculptures (Most of them from the Pergamon Altar)." - Beau Stanton
