The Artist


Xavier Gonzalez, born in Terrassa, Spain lives and works in Normandy where he is active in the scientific and artistic life of the area. Since 1985 his work has been seen in more than 60 exhibitions both individually and collectively throughout Europe. For more than 15 years he has organised and managed an annual Symposium at Cerisy-la-Foret resulting in the development of a Major Sculpture Park. Not only a sculptor he has established a reputation as an organiser and a judge of artistic events. 

"Xavier Gonzalez likes to play with forms and shapes of a place, a landscape, the horizon" 

"Hydris" is strong, elegant and sober. 
The subject is life. 
It is an organic language, a language with cells. I have tried to feel the magic of life in the stone. Maybe one day I will succeed...“
