To Mónica Capucho the word, text and image are parts of the same visual territory, because of the use of contrast elements through color, texture, pattern or opting for a harmony of tones, shapes and meanings. In any case, it is always a discourse in which the observer is an active part because vision and reading is interpretation and interpretation is always construction.

The artist has exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions such as "Solid Matter” (Galeria Municipal Vieira da Silva . Loures, Portugal, 2018), “Deconstructive Blocks”, “Clean Approach” (Carlos Carvalho Arte Contemporânea, Lisbon, Portugal, 2012; 2007), “Périclos / Arte Portugués de Hoy” (CAC Málaga . Málaga, Spain), "Identidad Femenina en la Colección del IVAM" (IVAM . Valência, Spain, Museu de Arte Moderna de Bogotá . Bogotá, Colombia; Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Santiago do Chile. Chile; Memorial da América Latina . São Paulo, Brazil). Her works are held in numerous public and private collections including those of the Francisco Pimentel & Associados SADV, Eastécnica, Lisbon, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lisbon, Portuguese Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Portuguese Embassy in Athens, Greece, Portuguese Embassy em Copenhagen, Denmark and Portuguese Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa.

Apparently objective and non- referential, Mónica Capucho' works display a large show-case of textures, sparkles, brushstrokes and subtle hues, containing in themselves a language only understood in a deeper analysis. The artist motivates us to observe beyond the outlook, playing hyding games, using for instance, surfaces with a similar visual result, mixing pigments for the effect, but which are different both in essence and perception to touch. The artist’ s decision capacity dwells in the composition of materials, in the textures, in their articulation with the meaning or the drawing of the word. Materiality is interpreted and understood in all its dimensions: the artist mixes concrete, wood, stone or silicone controlling their effects and the way in which they present themselves to the viewer, thinking about the temperature, the sparkle or the texture, about the attraction or coldness, the harshness or softness of the matter.
