BIRDS OF PARADISE

by Stan BRAKHAGE
1999 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 2' 22

This is a hand-painted work which involves a variety of colors applied within gouged and scratched shapes which approximate both swift shifts of bird-shape (legs, beaks and feather-spreads especially) and the Bird of Paradise flower-form as well, the former tending to metamorphize into the latter across the course of the work.
