This is another in the Minotaur series, a group of paintings that revolve around the concept of being "Other". I live in a country where being seen to be different dictated your status, income, social class, legal status, and freedom of movement. Loosely based on the mythological stories of the Minotaur's life and death, and the Mithraic Mysteries, I have used the metaphor of the Minotaur to investigate my own life as a man fighting prejudice and an artist fighting for recognition.

Michael Chomse studied Fine Art at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, South Africa, in the late seventies. It was a tumultuous time. He moved from there directly into a career as a documentary filmmaker, seeking the wider audiences that film offered his growing social conscience. Through thirty years of filmmaking, he has honed his visual and storytelling skills to the point where direct contact with paint and canvas is a necessity for his future development. He continues telling stories that have impacted him through the medium of paint on canvas . He is currently working closely with select artists in Europe, Canada and the USA, developing work that reflects a global perspective in the search for a new visual language.
