Henry Krokatsis

Henry Krokatsis - Dantalux, 2010 - seen here

I went along to Chapter Arts Centre last week and had a quick look around their new show A Fire in the Master's House is Set, curated by Simon Morrissey. I didn't have time to fully explore on this occasion, but I was immediately struck by two fantastic works by Henry Krokatsis which use found mirrors cut up and rearranged to fit together into one hybridised piece. The way the mirrors are placed serves to fragment the reflection so that a full image can never quite be seen. I didn't know about this artist so I'm intrigued and excited to find out some more.


  1. You're right, the work by Henry Krokatsis is fabulous. I love it when objects are altered so their original use becomes obsolete, taking them away from the 'object' and instead becoming 'art'.

  2. Hi Ruth, Hope all's well with you - these pieces really struck me, conceptually but also formally - beautiful.


Thanks for taking the time to read my join in the conversation...
