Guillermina Caicoya Art Projects presents the latest works by Monica Dixon.  
The artist, of American origin (New Jersey, 1971) and based in Oviedo, has a solid track record of national and international exhibitions, reinforced by the outstanding awards she has been acquiring in numerous competitions. Among the last ones, it is worth mentioning the obtaining of the National Painting Prize of Algemesí in its XXI edition, that of the XXII Bienal Arte no Morrazo, the First Painting Prize Torres García-Ciutat de Mataró organized by the Association Sant Lluc per l? Art and a prestigious 2nd Prize in the XVI National Contest of Painting Virgen de las Viñas.

In Somewhere... Nowhere, the artist shows landscapes with house and interiors in which she reflects, both thematically and aesthetically, the coherent evolution of her work. As Natalia Alonso Arduengo argues in the critical text of the exhibition,"in this exhibition Mónica Dixon confronts the spectator as a residential subject to a double reality: the dream house in front of abstract architecture, the dream home versus a scenario characterized by spatial neutrality. The first one depicts its exterior aspect and the second one represents its interior aspect. The inside and outside should have a continuity, a complementarity, but the truth is that these works are distinguished precisely for this reason, by the tension and dichotomy existing between both parties even though the absence of the inhabitant is a common link in the two approaches.
