Lori Field: Tiger Tarot is a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring tarot cards the artist, Montclair native Lori Field, created during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. Known for her mysterious modern-day fairytales in multiple mediums, Field employs a recurring cast of human and animal hybrids to explore themes of identity, vulnerability, and spirituality. Her characters, predominantly female or androgynous, serve as foils or narrators within the mysterious worlds of Field’s own creation. These animalistic figures also provide a means for exhibiting emotive personification and utilizing physical, animalistic traits to suggest internal, human struggles and motives.

With the tiger as her talisman, Field envisions her tarot as representing a subversive and emerging feminine concept of power. Of her Tiger Tarot, Field states, “tigers are symbolic of a fierce, true inner capacity to survive and rule over their own nature […] They take the chaos of the world and create their own space that is protective, and royal.” For Field, the tiger is a bridge between past civilizations and our own time.

Over the past six centuries, the art of tarot has evolved from card games to the interpretation of symbols to describe the past, present, as well as the future. With the creation of her tarot deck, designed with her own cast of characters and symbols, Field reinterprets the traditional tarot cards to provoke new insights into the modern era. Organized by guest curator, Kathy Imlay, the exhibition features over 60 works of art in twelve mediums. Lori Field: Tiger Tarot aims to take the viewer on a journey of divination–one that is humorous, irreverent, poetic, and profound all at the same time.

Lori Field: Tiger Tarot will open at the Montclair Art Museum on September 10, 2022, and remain in the Weston and Elevator Lobby Galleries until January 1, 2023.
