“A hidden soul turned inside out, only to reveal more than was intended. The dark liquid represents the substance that penetrated the soul with its poison. The hand, also bathed in dark liquid, stands for her intimate relationship with problems and fears,, but water cleanses and liberates. The pollution of the soul’s purity is also symbolized by the white shirt”, says artist Philipp Weber.

We are able to examine what it means to be saturated in a poison of our own making, as a result of holding on to our deepest insecurities. There is a hint of a barely hydrated salvation in the form of water, which in this case is the hope for redemption. A purification is underway.

Time brings about great reflection and clarity. We sometimes look back with dread on the messiness of our lives, symbolized here in the form of a poisonous ink. Black Poison is evolving and rife with accountability and regret.


We use the highest possible, colour tested printing process in the IBEX ArtLab. The Master-Giclées are overseen by the artists themselves to ensure that they are exactly as the artists want them. All used materials for the Master-Giclées are acid-free, so they will not turn yellow or go brittle. We use archival pigment inks which have the longest lifespan of any ink currently known.

At IBEX, we believe in providing the highest quality Master-Giclées to match the high quality of our artists. All pieces are produced in our own print, varnishing and framing facilities in Germany. From start to finish each work of art is handled personally by a master printer with more than 20 years of experience in the fine arts.
