In Search of Tarot

Exploring the wisdom and wildness that life has to offer, through the lenses of Tarot, music, and magic.
Nicolas Bruno is an artist based in Northport, New York, where he photographs and fabricates props for his compositions. Bruno weaves together his terrifying experiences of Sleep Paralysis with surreal self portraiture in a therapeutic translation of night terror to image. His constructed worlds of uncertainty exist on a plane between waking and sleeping, where he is tormented by a physical embrace of the subconscious and its perils, all while being paralyzed in bed. Influences of 19th century Romanticists, historical texts of occultism, and dream symbolism lace each composition with various visual dialogues of the macabre.
In this conversation, Nicolas and I talk about his artistic process and his newest creation, The Somnia Tarot, which channels his nocturnal experiences into a stunning 78-card deck.
