“Song of Songs” is alluding to one of the most poetic books in the Bible – the Song of Songs full of sensual and erotic poetry. There are discussions as to what that book means and what is it doing in a Bible, but Kir’s interpretation seems to appeal to its direct meaning of a sensual context with fleeting curves and abstract and frivolous shapes of different undertone completed in a pink and magenta palette of colors, underlying the suggestiveness of the work.
It is not 100% clear where the title connects to the image, however Kir claims that if you look at the painting from a particular point of view you will see a man, leaning over a book (of sensual poetry as Kir claims) with the streams of water running under his shape, with sensual female form looming over him.
Kir suggests that we are to explore the meaning of the work and to find our own interpretations of it, including, among other things, but turning the wok over its center in 360 degrees.
