...When Vaanaha was born, somewhere far away under the stars of the dark desert, no one, not even an old comet drover in an oasis, could have foreseen that a small, fragile figure wrapped in a camel's wool blanket at birth would one day set the tone of a Milanese street. Her name means "Desert Star" in a language that nobody wants to talk about. Some languages are better to be forgotten forever, especially those cursed. Her parents, however, had no choice, the Desert Star shone above their heads and reflected so persistently in the eyes of the newborn that they gave her the name in a cursed tongue. Everything seemed to go on well: a few years' march through the endless sea of sand, a raft with rumbling engines, landing on an Italian beach, arrest and certainty of deportation. Fortunately, in the same cell where the brutal carabinieri had locked her, a man who was used to giving orders sat for a short while. And the stars still shone in her eyes. As in a cheesy "C" movie, when his lawyers arrived a few hours later, he freed her from the barred cell
The next six years was his muse. She quickly learned to impose her will on others, learned the intricacies of Italian phrases, appreciated Dante and Caravaggio's paintings. The nickname "fashion icon" always struck her as plain. She preferred to be called the patron of art. The paradox killed her. Because how else to call a massive frame weighing over 150 kilograms decorating a fairly average painting?...

The nobility of white porcelain, which is the highest form of ceramics, the difficulty in processing it, the craftsmanship and the author's talent make this project a work of art.

“In contact with Marek Kotarba's works, emotions appear similar to those we feel when looking at" Reliefs "by Henryk Stażewski from the" white paintings "period. There is abstraction, here is realism, but in both cases the main player is light, each time creating a different value for the perception of impeccably white porcelain. It is a very valuable and demanding partner. It works perfectly in Marek's works " – Andrzej Pągowski, graphics artist
