Solaris

Victo Ngai

I am so excited to announce the release of my Tarkovsky’s Solaris poster for Black Dragon press. 18”x24” 6 colors hand-pulled screen print in limited editions printed by White Duck Screenprint on 270gsm Mohawk Superfine Ultrawhite Eggshell paperOriginal is on sale now. Variant will be on sale tomorrow. 

Solaris by Tarkovsky is an absolutely stunning and haunting movie. It was a great yet fulfilling challenge to capture its eerie beauty and the openness of the story plot. I am very thankful to James Park of Black Dragon and AD Nico Delort for having so much faith in me. Being able to approach the project with my own interpretations of the film definitely makes the posters extra special for me.

NOW GO GET ONE BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!

As well as being a hugely talented illustrator, Peter teaches drawing at the illustration academy Illuskills, is currently serving as Secretary of the European Illustrators’ Forum, and works with Illustria - the society of Austrian illustrators-. His work has been exhibited in Berlin, New York, Vienna, Adelaide and Halifax, and has received awards from the Society of Illustrators, Illustrative Berlin, Spectrum and more. Peter Diamond had this to say about the prints:

“When I read Watership Down some years ago I already had dim, bloody memories of the 1978 animated adaptation, so I wasn’t shocked by the violence in the book as I expect many were who read it unprepared. But what I hadn’t expected was the thick, dark vein of fear that runs through the story from the very beginning. Adams went deep with it, building an occult kind of mythology for the rabbits including a dark underworld and a heavenly kingdom, represented by the moon (Inlé) and the sun (Frith) respectively.

The character who best reflects this is Fiver, by far my favourite in the story. He’s caught between the underworld and the living world, and his clairvoyant fear is in some respects the basis for the entire story. The little rabbit in these posters is Fiver, sensing but not quite seeing the danger beneath his feet.  In the Regular edition he stands under the sun at mid-day (Ni-Frith), in the Variant under the moon at midnight (Fu Inlé).

I’ve introduced other elements from the story as well; the shining snare wires, the spirits of rabbits long since gone in the ground, the spectre of the Black Rabbit Of Inlé, and even the wheels of the steam train and the face of Kehaar. See if you can find them!”
