Minotaur

This series of works, about the half-bull, half-human Minotaur imprisoned in the Cretan labyrinth, is a long meditation on our attitudes to the complex animal elements within each of us and the way in which we enclose ourselves in labyrinths.

While working on these pieces, new imagery has emerged from the process of making, such as a strange, glowing Tardis-like box and a form which appears variously to be a heart, a rooted seed, an embryo or a jellyfish.

As in the original Greek myth, horror and playfulness are both present, in settings where known places fuse with those depicted by great image-makers of the past. Each work is also an experiment in using a different kind of visual language.
