CONTRATHEMIS : COMPOSITION II

by Dwinell GRANT
1941 / color / silent / 1S / 3' 00

"Grant had made CONTRATHEMIS : COMPOSITION II in 1941 and would later make 3 THEMES IN VARIATION : COMPOSITION IV (1945), pictorially inspired films borrowing from El Lissitzky and László Moholy-Nagy’s lexicon, which worked their plastic parameters in the same way as Fischinger’s abstract films — but without music as a motivation for their development — that is to say, by subordinating color to geometric form (circles, squares and rectangles, but also cones and points) the importance of which is its trajectory through the frame." - Nicole Brenez
