Artist's Description

Three of Hearts divided has three layers.

Layer One – The Three of Hearts from a traditional deck of cards with the addition of two swords each pointing at one of the hearts in the opposite corners next to the two number 3s.

Layer Two – The painting of the three musicians from the tomb of Nakht in Thebes. This has long been one of my favorite Egyptian images. In this painting, I duplicated and reversed the image of the musicians, creating a curved scaffold made up from the harps combined with the upper and lower swords The central heart from layer one is centered inside these two harps. The duplicated harpists remain very similar with the one of the right an older version of the one on the left. Meanwhile the other two musicians face each other on each side with the central musician has been transformed into a male figure.

Layer Three – This layer is made up of three tarot images. On the left is the blindfolded and bound woman from the Eight of Swords with the swords forming a kind of prison or enclosure around her. The middle figure is the Hanged Man, suspended and entangled while two harpists play his heartstrings. On the far right is the Queen of Swords, a figure of judgment, and her gaze is fixed on the bound woman with accusation. Meanwhile the couples behind the bound woman and the queen seem to be hidden from the view of both the accuser and the accused, because they are so focused on each other.

All in all, this is a very tangled mess filled with pain and suspicion in which the figures are bound by both their own actions and the accusations of others and the only way out is a general amnesty.
