LOVESONG

by Stan BRAKHAGE
2001 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 11' 00

"Lovesong" is a hand-painted elaborately step-printed work which utilizes light transparencies in combination with light bounced directly off the surface of the individual film frames to establish and eventually enmesh two distinct entities of variable paint (more distinct than superimposition or bi-packing could achieve) -- said entities taking on separate personae against which (and finally in conjunction with which) the glyphic representations of body parts gradually entwining, separating and re-combining again and again, are interwoven with the expressively drawn sexual organs represented in dark outlines which often 'explode' into black sperm-marks surrounding multiply colored egg-likenesses.
