In 1974, Rytka had his first solo show, Temporal Divisions, at the Remont Gallery in Warsaw. In the late 1970s associated with the Współczesna Gallery in Warsaw. In the early 1980s his works offered a critique of martial law; member (1982-1989) of the Kultura Zrzuty / Chip-In Culture independent art movement in Łódź, associate of Józef Robakowski, Łódź Kaliska’s Strych / Attic, the Mała Gallery in Warsaw, Wschodnia Gallery and FF Gallery in Łódź.

Rytka investigated art’s media potential and human perceptual capacities in the Neuron-Optical-Electronic (NOE) Installation (1994). From 1980, during numerous trips to the Białka River in the Tatra Mountains, he created series of post-conceptual works exploring the power and mysterious vitality of nature, including Supplementary Images and The Continuity of Infinity, followed by Dynamic Objects (2002). Since the early 2000s, he has exhibited installations (Momentary Objects, 2001; Dynamic Objects, 2003) recapitulating his work to date, from The Continuity of Infinity in a spatial form, going beyond the boundaries of the given medium (primarily photography), to projects aimed at investigating the sense of perception. His intermedia works are post-conceptual in character. In 2005, co-founder of the In Situ Foundation of Contemporary Art.
