Somewhere.... nowhere
Monica Dixon.
Guillermina Caicoya Art Projects

From November 24th to December 22nd, the Guillermina Caicoya Art Projects Gallery presents the latest works by Monica Dixon in an exhibition entitled "Somewhere... Nowhere".
The painter, of American origin and based in Oviedo, has a solid trajectory of national and international exhibitions, reinforced by the outstanding prizes that she has acquired in numerous competitions. Among the latter, it is worth mentioning the National Prize of Painting of Algemesí in its XXI edition, the one of the XXII Biennial Art no Morrazo, the First Prize of Painting 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 is represented in its exterior aspect and the second one in an interior way. 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.
