The constructions and they are clean and well crafted are designed to deceive.  When viewed from the front they appear flat and two-dimensional, but as the viewer changes his position the dimensionality of the work emerges.  Exuberant one of the best is chastely white, which the lateral planes painted yellow, is a handsome piece.

The graphics for the most part intaglio prints, also are hexagonal. They are interesting as they demonstrate the effect of color on space, shape and movement. In other graphics the artist has taken several copies of the same print and by cutting out parts and arranging them in three dimension space, she not only works with collage but also deals with real spatial relationships.

Sometimes a print is fixed on a plastic form (graphmobile), naturally a hexagon, suspended in space so as to pick up reflections from surrounding objects, Katinka Mann is inventive and willing to experiment. She has narrowed the focus to one form, but she has explored it in many directions.
