Marald Van Haasteren "Mortuous Through Wilderness" Giclee Print


"Mortuous Through Wilderness" is an illustration by Marald Van Haasteren. Originally used as the cover of "Through Wilderness" the incredible album by Mortuous.

“The main inspiration/theme was the suggestion of Colin (guitar/vocals of Mortuous) to view the wilderness as ones mind & go for a more hallucinating/fever dream like image. The main figure is based on the "headless screaming" lyrics. I wanted to portray a figure trying to escape its world/mind, trying to fly away. A figure so desperate & in conflict with its mind that it beheaded itself to escape it, only to have the head conjoined with its roots & still growing out new entangled roots/trunks. I gave it wings to create a dramatic flow, movement but also to portray them as the main pathways that are "genetically" a mess/entangled & force every new trunk/idea to bend to their way & create even more chaos. Behind the figure is a second wilderness: a maze/labyrinth but this one is structured, constructed, forces you to follow a path to no where, e.g. society.”

The print is available in 2 different sizes.
