"Originality Stands Out in Sculptural Variety"

"The kind of originality in Katinka Mann's work reminds us that one the most powerful characteristics of contemporary art is the spirited license with which materials are creatively combined to invent modes of expression that often have lasting significance.

The Mann pieces are dynamic, angled geometric constructions that rather ingeniously use the camera as part of the approach.

What seems so special here is the way the glistening processed surfaces generate soft effervescent visual qualities.

These are the sofest of tonalities, a bit fuzzy, with spots of very great light intensity. Form, of course is Mrs. Mann's basic sculptural subject, an one reats stronly to the disciplined architecture of space and spatial illusion that simulates movement and a perspective that is iimpressively bold for the modest sie of the weightless photo-sculpture.
