Kristian Krokfors is an eminently serious artist. His works are in no sense didactic, but if you were to ask what they are "about", the answer would spring unbidden, without any verbal prompting from him. Yes, they are, they must be, about the environment. They take as their evident, immediate subject the splendours and miseries of town planning and urbanism’s shaky relations with whatever belt of green it chooses to girdle itself with. They look at the dryness of the desert, the acrid smoke that belches from factories, the wind that shakes the barley – or would, if there were any barley left to shake. - John Russell Taylor
