"Every now and then a show comes along that knocks one’s preconceptions sideways..." - Edward Lucie-Smith, see the review here.
Meridian Skylines invites the viewer to consider our metropolis with a new awareness, creating a platform to contemplate our own utopian mindscapes. Caio Locke’s heterotopias – or “other spaces” – aim to encourage such private reverie and pose an ‘idea’ of a future, worthy of aspiring towards.

By contemplating both paintings simultaneously, viewers find themselves on the precipice between hemispheres, time and cultures. In many ways, Le Corbusier’s idea of architecture as a “pure creation of the mind” allows society to dream in space, light, and form. Locke invites the audience into these utopian projections, placing one upon these thresholds as if to consider both sides of the ‘doorway’; looking both to
the dream and reality.
Meridian Skylines encourages a profound awareness of self-transcendence and coexistence. Experiencing the artist’s utopias manifests an understanding of a possible future consisting both of collective consciousness and individuality. Not merely within ourselves but in the cities we build, no matter its history, and the natural environments we coexist with, wherever located in the world.
