I initiated this project in 2016 with AVA, an arts group I was involved with. I love playing cards, and I own a lot of card decks. When I found out that it was quite easy and not that costly to get decks printed up, I presented the idea of creating our own deck to the group, which they eagerly agreed to. We were each allotted certain cards to design, and we also invited guest artists to participate. The originals were shown at Havana Gallery, where we also sold the decks.
I really enjoyed playing with the symmetry/asymmetry inherent in designing a playing card, as well as masculine/feminine, black/white paradigms.
