Artist Michelle Sakhai Visualizes the Tarot

The Editors


Madelyn Jordon Fine Art (Scarsdale, New York) is currently exhibiting The Arcana Series: Interpretations of Tarot, a solo exhibition of new abstract paintings based upon the tarot created in the past year by New York City artist Michelle Sakhai. This is Sakhai’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and will be on view from September 6 – October 19, 2019.


Sakhai created her own version of each major Arcana card, translating it with her vision of each card’s meaning and imagery, while honoring the sacred interpretation of the original Tarot cards.  According to Sakhai, “We live in a modern era and the cards could benefit from an updated rendition. My intention behind recreating them is to both connect us back to the source and the higher power, bringing healing to those who feel a connection with Tarot.”


Sakhai further states, “Major Arcana Tarot cards represent the life lessons, karmic influences, and the big archetypal themes that influence our life and soul’s journey to enlightenment. Their meanings are deep, complex, and represent the structure of human consciousness. Tarot readings are a powerful form of divination that use an ancient deck of cards to help you find answers to your most important questions.”


Sakhai received her Master’s in Fine Arts in 2010 from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Sakhai has exhibited her work nationally and internationally including at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art, in Scarsdale, New York;  Lehman College Museum, Bronx, New York;  Stanford Art Spaces, MarinMOCA, San Francisco;  and SOMArts, San Francisco; ADAA at the Park Avenue Armory, New York City; Palette Gallery, Tokyo; and El Hotel Pacha, in Ibiza, Spain.
