Dark graphics derived from the tarot series. As the title suggests, it depicts a hermit woman. On a dark, shiny background, a figure can be seen moving away towards nothingness. The way her face has been cut out and separated from the rest of her body and the way she moves away from the viewer is an extremely interesting artistic trick. Especially in the context of the theme of the entire work – aloneness.
The solitary woman portrayed resembles an astronaut lost in space, travelling between planets. Her face is contemplative, her eyes gazing into space. The stars around her shine like lamps lighting her way. Despite being alone, she is also free.
