Through the Wormhole
Animetalphysical is Sean Reynolds Williams, as well as the stunning visuals behind much of Pallbearer‘s vinyl and merch. His illustrations and paintings contemplate existence on a metaphysical level, taking the viewer into a place of deep meditation where he explores esoteric planes of thought and dimension. Whether in black and white or vivid color, his work is captivating, and it’s easy to see how well his imagery works with the heavy resounding tones of Pallbearer’s music. He plays with perspective in a way that draws the eye to many places at once, but without creating confusion. It’s more like seeing through the wormhole into several different worlds that all coexist at once. Space figures prominently in many of his pieces, whether as a backdrop of bursting stars or as planets inhabited by surreal beings, and lends a sense of the mysteries of the universe to his work. Animetalphysical’s imagery goes hand in hand with a mind’s eye turned translucent by sticky clouds of weed smoke, open to all the possibilities of the imagination’s journey. After the jump, check out a gallery of his work, some of which are available for sale through his Facebook page.
