“Having been associated with art for many years I am constantly looking for artists
who display originality or splendid technique or dedication to that which they create.
Seldom do I find an artist that embodies all of those qualities.
Such an artist is Katrin Matlacz.
She is well loved here in my London gallery and she offers a particular style and narrative
that my other sculptors do not.
It is patently obvious that a great deal of her soul is added as an ingredient in her sculpture
and I believe that if you have seen her work,
you have seen Katrin”.

James Corless NDD Sculpt.

Golden Medal

first prize at "Salon d'Automne - Coubron" - Paris
for sculpture "Dreaming a Dream of Venice"
( November 2013 )
The sculptures by Katarzyna Bulka-Matlacz amazingly
combine the elements of surrealism, grotesque and fairy tale,
which are used to show the complexity of human condition,
man's ambitions and limitations, his advantages and drawbacks.
The artist uses extremely adequate thought abbreviations to enclose
a complete tale carrying a deep philosophical and
humanistic message in a limited space.
The sculptress uses the lost wax
casting, a technique known since ancient times.
This method of making artistic moulds requires the sculptor's
huge artistry and patience.
Each of the artist's sculptures is a unique and inimitable creation.
The works reflect her unusual precision and respect for the recipients.
The extraordinary relationship she is able to
establish with the audience results in the excellent acceptance and
recognition of her works of art., in Poland and all over the world.
