“Jarosław Klupś is an artist for whom photographic medium seems to be very important. Yet his art works usually become even something much more than appearance of usual interpreted art of that kind. Because author concerns in creating ambiguous artistic situations, where various reflexions about relations between time, reality and forms of its notation become encoded” - Rafał Boettner-Łubowski, "IKS Magazine" 186/10/2006.
