The juxtaposition of organic and inorganic elements. Showing their interdependence and the transformation of one into the other. Penetrating the crevices of reality in an attempt to find the subjectivity lost by his contemporaries. In his works Leszek Knaflewski returns to the forces of nature - organic elements. They, through their primordiality and apparent immutability, are a testimony to the oppressive action of man on the surrounding reality.
The idea he proposes of a return to nature is meant to be a kind of khatarsis for the consumerist-obsessed human being. In his compositions, he used non-material objects mainly belonging to the group of everyday ones. He used them to create constructions, complicated in terms of structure and meaning, which seemingly had no right to carry coherent content. However, their consonance and co-relation enabled him to generate content that hitherto went beyond their individual semantics.
