out of time

anachronism – against time (ana against, chronos time) - belonging to a different time/era/period

 

mortality - no time left - endtime - approaching annihilation/death

musical - unrelated to beat or pulse, arhythmic, disconnected, temporally dissonant

 

philosophical/religious - outside of time/eternal/timeless

 

Unlike music, literature and drama, painting does not work with or within linear time. It has spatial boundaries, but it has no beginning, nor end, nor duration. 

 

In Confessions 11:21, Augustine asks: ‘In what space then do we measure time passing?’
