About the artist/author of Pholarchos Tarot:
Carmen Sorrenti was born in Positano, Italy, where she grew up with an Australian mother and a gang of international artists. Her early food consisted of mystical Persian poetry, Hungarian cartoon strips, singing drag acts and a host of different languages. After training at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, she toured with theater companies, worked at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, in Martin Scorsese's "Gangs of New York" and opposite John Turturro in "Secret Passage". Playing Philomele in Wertenbaker’s “The Love of the Nightingale” sparked her interest in mythology which led her to Liz Greene’s Centre for Psychological Astrology. Simultaneously, profound experiences in dreams triggered an ever deepening exploration through painting and depth psychology. Plant visitations were a major part of these nightly encounters and they revolutionized her worldview. Carmen is the creator of the Pholarchos Tarot, a visionary 78 card deck based on dream incubation and alchemy. She is a certified dreamworker (DSI, Scott Sparrow) and is currently pursuing post-graduate studies at LIT: "Art, Psyche and the Creative Imagination. She leads workshops on dreams, talismanic art and tarot.
Carmen has contributed to various publications including painting book jackets. Her deck’s Moon card won the Premio Giorgione for Alchemical Painting. She was also selected as a Top Ten Artist for the New York magazine ~ Art511mag.
Along with the Pholarchos Tarot deck, the original paintings became available at various galleries and special events from 2018, such as the Algonquin Club, SoWa, as well as Gold Coast Gallery, (Boston, MA) and a month long exhibit in Rome. Visit Carmen's site for updates and upcoming events.
