Linie Line Linea. Contemporary Drawing

Using pencil, oil paint, and sticky tape Monika Brandmeier gradually works through the frames of reference of her highly reduced and concentrated works. Her work is a process – she draws one line, which is then answered by the second and then the third. Sometimes the results are reminiscent of objects: cylinders, cushions, feathers, a pink cloud on a frame.
