"Tides of Time" ~ Fine art prints by Carmen Delprat.

“Tides of Time” originated as an illustration and was made into a silkscreen print and is now also available as fine art prints.


The image of a figure tied to a huge ball which is also physically tied to the tide is a personal take on Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus, (1485). A Botticelli like shell is depicted as a ball of time (in Pythagorean theories, the shell represents all time – the past, present & future with its ratio progressions). In contrast to Botticelli’s Venus who is blown safely to shore by the winds, this Venus is compelled to follow her destiny, as indicated by the ropes that bind her. This reinforces the notion that we are all creatures travelling in time and that time has an inescapable grasp over mortal life.


Although the figure is anchored to time in this print there is an element of freedom as suggested by her hair blowing in the breeze and the ‘bubbles of time’ she freely ‘kisses off’ into the wind. Freedom of spirit can be discovered once we unleash ourselves from the false illusions of time. The key is to break free from the constraints of out rational mind, and ego to ultimately become in tune with our higher self.
