"It is not enough to see the Polish landscape and watch Polish customs in order to get to know Polish art. The art is very closely tied to both historical traditions and recent developments in Poland.

My method of working is as follows: I take a concrete situation connected to a concrete idea and transform it into visual language. I like to show, sometimes even blow-up, problems that other dont notise. I want people to pay attention to things that are difficult to see, so that they will develop diffrent ways of seeing the world around them. My idea is not openly declare problems and situations. The works are only a suggestion for the viewers."
