Shop Two of Wands Canvas Print by artist Rebecca Magar available at Artist.com. Check out the Canvas Print collections available at Artist.com.The Two of Wands symbolizes the decision to move forward on your chosen path, or to take your first step toward exploring new horizons. The female figure featured in this artwork is in a position of power, leading her pack down this new pathway with confidence and a sense of self-empowerment. The constellation Aries shines through in the background as a nod to the astrological association of this card, and the stark contrast between fire and ice indicate the importance of balance. This piece was illustrated for a collaborative Dark Art Tarot Project that was successfully funded on Kickstarter.
I have always been inspired by fantastic and imaginative stories with dark themes. In addition to my love of fantasy, I grew up with a close relationship to (and love for) animals. These ideas and inspirations naturally made their way into my own work while I progressed as an artist.
My work would be best described as imaginative realism or dark fantasy art and has been compared to other traditional illustrative artists such as Frank Frazetta or Jeff Jones. I frequently include animals, death, skeletons, crows and other dark subject matter in my artwork.
As an artist, I try to breathe life into each piece by incorporating both subtle and bold movements. My hope is that the observer not only views the artwork, but also imagines the rushing wind, senses the cold, or hears the sound of wings thrashing in the sky. I aim for each and every piece to be a complete visual experience.
