χρόνος (Khronos) translates to time. In Greek mythology, Khronos was the son of earth and sky, titan of time, and father of the Olympian gods. A prophecy foretold that one of his children would eventually over throw him. Fear corrupted Khronos and he devoured his children.
The story fascinates me and I see it as a metaphor of how time devours all things. What ruthlessly drains the stars, grinds mountains and consumes all flesh? Time. Never satisfied and forever consuming the future through the jaws of the present, we cannot escape it. Nor can we master it. When captured, it slips through our fingers. It will tear its teeth into all things until the end of time.
I wanted to begin with the figure and break-away to a somewhat impressionistic treatment of the clay while exploring a more interpretive representation of the narrative.
