Atropos

- by john christopher borrero

This week's theme: Self Expression

Do you talk with your hands? Laugh through your nose? Furrow your brow when explaining something? No one communicates in exactly the same way. We each have behaviours and characteristics make the way we express ourselves unique to us. The same is true with artists and their art. This week, EBSQ's Art Of The Day brings you seven artists that are excellent examples of this. Each piece of art speaks in an voice that is uniquely and distinctly that of the artist that created it.


Art: Atropos by Artist john christopher borrero
This piece began as a study on the concept of fate.

In Greek mythology, Atropos was one of the three Moirae, the Fates, the female deities who supervised fate rather than determine it.

Atropos was the fate who cut the thread or web of life. She was known as the "inflexible" or "inevitable" and cut this thread with the "abhorred shears." She worked along with Clotho, who spun the thread, and Lachesis, who measured the length.

They were the daughters of Zeus and Themis (the goddess of order.)
