About the Artist
The sculptures and “hybrid” paintings by Dionisios Fragias place a contemporary spin on imagery derived from the Bible and ancient Greek & Roman myths, utilizing the lessons they teach to comment upon mankind’s cyclical and competing tendencies toward creation and destruction. His most recent body of work focuses on a specific area of man’s duality – the propensity to take action and dominate when he senses a void in any sphere of society. Whether the vacuum to be filled allows for the furtherance of a cultural or scientific agenda, or the gap being plugged permits exploitative and abusive uses of power, Dionisios suggestively presents both sides of the same coin.
