Plonka currently divides his time and labour between Warsaw and Andrych√≥w. The theme of most of his works centers around man as a subject. The reality of people or man is often blurred through abstraction and a¬† dreamlike state evoked by using geometric refraction and distortion. Plonka subjects an image of the man to various artistic operations, arising from thorough psychological analysis . Characters presented by the artist acquire different meaning, becoming the subject of many interpretations. Some of them run through the internal mechanisms.
