KATARZYNA WRÓBLEWSKA is a creator who connects art experiments with the designing activity. She moves in these fields with the great ease and she seems to get a lot of pleasure out of it. The material or, better to say, the medium through which she expresses herself is genuine leather. The artist treats this material with great respect although she tries to find new forms and usage for leather while experimenting with it all the time. The effects of Ms Wróblewska’s work do not let the recipients and viewers remain indifferent as they are related to surprising shapes, formal solutions and unusual attention to details. Her talent, hard work and the readiness to carry out new artistic and designing experiments are accompanied by her personal features like sensitivity and emphatic attitude.
