Graciela García Muñoz, The Black Deck of the Quarantine (2020).
The Black Deck of the Quarantine took place during the spring 2020 COVID-19 lockdown.
The quarantine proved to be a hugely fruitful experience for Graciela from a creative perspective. Confined alone in her apartment in Madrid, Graciela García devoted herself to the daily creation of images that stroke her mind during those days and nights, inspiring her to undertake a deck of cards that seemed to flow under dictation and not by deliberate design.
The compositions in The Black Deck of Quarantine are peopled by hybrid figures that are often part-human, part-beast. She continued to develop this project right up until the end of the lockdown.
