The art of Hector de Gregorio

Tarot imagery—or work inspired by it—continues to infiltrate the contemporary art world. The gallery sites featuring Hector de Gregorio’s pictures have a couple of other portraits based on the Major Arcana but there’s no clue as to whether he’s depicted the full series. Given the quality of these creations I think he ought to give it a go. Via Bajo el Signo de Libra.

    Thanks for this inspiring post, John! De Gregorio’s work is entirely new to me and I’m glad to see that a photographer interested in fetish, art historical and religious themes has not only been able to avoid all the Witkin-isms so prevalent in the genre, but to embrace humour as well. Top stuff.
