..I would like to present my current stand on painting. It is a mixture of constructivism, figurative art, expressionism and painting caught up in numerous symbols. Perhaps this attitude is a bit baroque, with its divergence and accumulation of topics, nevertheless, its common ground would be the poetic and humorous qualities present in my works for years. As the poet Eugeniusz Tkaczyszyn-Dycki said: Art reflects the need to disgrace oneself, and disgrace is associated with a certain risk. Risk I am willing to take. – Katarzyna Frankowska
