  • Caro d’Offay,
  • Monika Bartholome at Devening Projects
  • The complex relationships between reality and the imaginary world, the outside world and the inside world have continued to occupy Monika Bartholomé. With unerring precision, the artist probes that interim space where abstraction and objectivity engage in surprising interplay, resulting in pencil and brush drawings that reach her own dream-like picture reality.
