Surreal Purgatory Art

Siegfried Zademack Renders Bizarre Works of Hell on Earth

— March 16, 2012 — Art & Design
Siegfried Zademack is a German-born artist who has been a prominent surrealist in the international art scene since 1975. The artist has a bold style, favoring bizarre compositions and muted neutral tones.

The series frequently features a massive bust of a Greek sculpture. The woman's head is dropped into varying scenes, at times crying, shooting lasers from her eyes or transitioning into a planet of sorts. There is also a frequent religious motif, with crosses, thorn crowns and circus angels. Zademack has an interesting vision, incorporating slender, single-feathered wings and floating wine jugs. The most memorable of the series is a scene of a floating swam boat, with a sheet-draped figure being hugged by a somewhat chilling skeleton.
