What happens when you task 12 artists with translating Darren Aronofsky’s latest film into works of art? The 12 gorgeous pieces of artwork that IGN can exclusively debut below.
In preparation for the upcoming release of mother!, Paramount worked with a group of artists from around the world to create the custom images featured below. Each artist was given the audio from the first trailer as inspiration, which makes it especially interesting when you see the themes that reappear in many of the works of art.
And for context on what inspired these artists, rewatch mother!’s first trailer below.
mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence as its titular heroine, a happily married woman living in a beautiful house in the country with her husband (played by Javier Bardem). Their tranquil life begins to deteriorate upon the arrival of a mysterious couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfieffer), whose mere presence seems to challenge all perceptions of reality.
Aronofsky’s first directorial effort since 2014’s Noah, mother! is a psychological horror film in the vein of his earlier works Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream. Paramount has been leaning into mother!’s unique artistic inspiration since the beginning of its marketing campaign, as evidenced by the film’s first poster.
mother! hits theaters on September 15th. For more upcoming fall film releases to look forward to, make sure to check out IGN’s list of the 17 new movies to geek out over before Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
