Linda Falorio is an internationally recognized artist and writer, and
creator of the Occult bestseller, The Shadow Tarot. This twenty-two card major-arcana
tarot has been distributed in countries all around the world, and is in use on every
continent of the planet. The Shadow Tarot was created as an exploration tool for delving
into those areas of the psyche that find their reflection in the Collective Unconscious,
and the Archetypal Shadow. The images represent the Nightside of Consciousness as opposed
to our ordinary "dayside" reality. The artist is also known for her magickal
altar-pieces, for magickal portraits, and for
interpreting personal symbols and dreams on canvas.
intention as an Artist and Stellar Sorcerer is to bring into focus symbolic and mythic
themes of the Collective Unconscious, transmuting dark atavisms of the distant
human-prehuman past into newly emerging far-future human selves. I seek to create a direct
outré experience in the viewer of these transforming states of self-awareness; to open
Gates into vast, unexplored inner geographies of the psyche, finding beauty and power in
the twistings and turnings of the Inner Labyrinth. I seek to tread the path of the Shaman
into the realm of the ancient Ones, to reconnect with the primordial heritage of power
sucked from the bowels of the earth, to reclaim the power of the Dark Feminine within, to
find and express the Magick of the Transpersonal Shadow. I seek, through the spark of Art,
to delight and to inspire, to mold Archetypes of human consciousness into new and
visionary forms, evolving new Goddesses and Gods, inventing new dreams, reaching for
Utopian Magicks that together we may yet create. I seek, through Art, nothing less than
the Magick of Self-Transformation."
