Unfathom – Ronald Zieger –
UNFATHOM is the joint venture of ten diverse artists, resulting in a strangely
coherent book. From the figurative to the abstract to the monochromatic to the brightly surreal: their work merges into bizarre and unreal worlds.
Sweden Rock Magazine:
“Ten artists, 1000 techniques, 216 pages and a common ground: a calling, difficult to define, that merges with something external, larger, and stronger. The transcendental, the abstract hidden in enigmatic mysticism. Or just some lines on a piece of paper?
The reader decides.
Unfathom’ also has a common ground in the shape of the darker ends of the metal scene. Several pieces are album covers for bands like Inquisition, Necros Christos, and Manilla Road.
Here’s everything from Dave Patchett’s complex and Hieronymus Bosch-inspired Cathedral covers to faded sketches in coffee and blood. I’m intrigued by Jonathan Hultén’s work, as well as Timo Ketola’s writings on the purpose of the sketch, not differing much from what the underground people refer to as ‘the first demo’ where the subconscious appears less restrained. The psychologist Jens Näsström, previously known as Dr. Schitz from the legendary Morbid, contributes with a profound afterword dealing amongst other things with the chaos of dark powers, headbanging, and gravitation.”
