On November 2, 2023 (Thursday) at 17:30, in Dobrich Art Gallery will be opened the joint exhibition of Monika Romenska – Graphics and Sonia Stankova – Photography. Monika Romenska presents her works from two successive exhibitions – “Faraway Sailing” and “Caetera Desunt” (“The rest is missing”), created with a certain distance in time, but connected with each other, the second being a logical emotional continuation of the first. Sonia Stankova participates in the joint project with art photography. Using various techniques, she presents the world transformed through the lens, creating an abstract environment with two-dimensionality of the image, which, transformed into a photograph, becomes real. “Because only a real image can be captured.” (S. Stankova)
