According to myth, the minotaur symbolises the meeting of opposites: the feminine and masculine; creature and human; rational and irrational; spiritual and instinctual; and, good and evil. This duality underlies Auguste Blackman’s images of minotaurs, who despite their beastliness, feel familiar.

In ‘Minos’, Auguste paints a minotaur lost in thought. Serene and reticent, this creature has been civilised – its mythic fate paused at a moment of pensive reprieve. What does the minotaur gaze upon?

Poetry on canvas, ‘Minos’ is a compelling entry in Auguste’s long standing interest in mythology. It is recognisably by the artist, an unexpected and disarming portrait of fantasy. For collectors of expressionist art, it will delight.
