Three of Clubs (Trees) from the House of Cards series and was inspired by the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s killer. The series reimagines a deck of cards in large-scale works on paper. Weaver Ross spent three years creating the vibrantly colored images: 52 cards plus four jokers/wild cards. The 26 x 40-inch images layer cultural, political, historical and mystical references. Clubs become trees, spades explore bones and fossils, and diamonds transform in to constellations and celestial bodies, and hearts draw inspiration from Egyptian Tomb paintings and the Tarot.
