About Clotho:

Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/; Greek: Κλωθώ) is one of the Three Fates or Moirai who spin (Clotho), draw out (Lachesis) and cut (Atropos) the thread of Life in ancient Greek mythology. Her Roman equivalent is Nona. Clotho was responsible for spinning the thread of human life. She also made major decisions, such as when a person was born, thus in effect controlling people’s lives. This power enabled her not only to choose who was born, but also to decide when gods or mortals were to be saved or put to death. For example, Clotho brought Pelops back to life when his father boiled and killed him.” (Source: Wikipedia.org/wiki/clotho)

The Series Style: Non-Geometric, Delineated, Abstract, Figurative.

This is a three piece series. It is of a “Non-Geometric, Delineated, Abstract, Figurative, style. The three art photographs of this series are my representation of the Greek mythological Fates: Lachesis, Clotho, and Atropos. There was no particular spark of influence to do this series. I am a student of Ancient Greek History, and Mythology, and I wanted to do a series of the Fates in my personal style: Non-geometric, Delineated Abstract.

☆ These artworks are mixed medium—a combination of Alcohol, Oil, and Water based ink dyes. The original material is 135 gsm art paper, and the final material is digital photography.
