Kyle Ranson will be present at WAX/WANE this weekend - here is a bit about the Tarot cards he created with John Dwyer from (Damaged Bug, Oh Sees) Fellow travelers, we come with something small but very, very heavy: a limited edition tarot card deck, entirely designed and conceived by out-there artist and old friend of the Castle Face Kyle Ranson, with an accompanying soundtrack on 7” by John Dwyer’s Damaged Bug. Kyle’s paintings explode vibrantly across these lovely cards, and his permutations are both perverse, grotesque, and shockingly, richly beautiful. They do not follow the classical path of the Rider/Waite deck so much as grow a new garden from the ashes of that deck and re-inhabit it with new insects, predators, and prey.
For his part, Dwyer’s "Smoggy Terminus" is massive and entrancing, mantra-like, double drums spinning like a mandala spacewards, and it’s backed by wistfully funked "Horse Egg 2" and a blinking chamber-pop slice of pie "Stellar Dust”. A little taste of what our man’s been brewing in his castle’s basement, and there is more yet to come... art by Kyle Ranson.
