Graphic from the Tarot series. In the centre of the work, an elegant woman in a suit can be seen. Her head is open and sprouting from it are two hands entwining the inscription “The Magician”. The artist has replicated the protagonist’s eyes by inverting the other pair, thus creating an interesting, if unsettling, image. Circles are visible in the background, creating a hypnotic atmosphere.
The work as a whole has just this magical theme and this is evidenced by the many symbols used by the artist. The suit, which is very associated with magicians during performances, the eyes, which are a kind of magic trick, and the hypnotic background. All of these contribute to the unique, magical atmosphere of the work felt by the viewer.
