The circle is a recurring geometric shape in the work of sculptor Alexia Weill. She works with it, much like mandalas, in all kinds of materials, including stone, wood, bronze, and resin. She imbues her energy into each creation through her imagination, which is renewed with every new piece.
This symbol is found in many cultures: Indian, Tibetan, Native American, Aboriginal, Oceanian, African, Celtic – mandalas are a symbolic representation of cosmic harmony.
Alexia’s circles are always pierced at their center, offering a glimpse of an opening, a window into reality, like a breath or a fixed point in an ever-moving world.
For the Millennium art gallery, Alexia is presenting for the first time a collection of carved and colored wooden circles in which she has engraved her emotions and sensations through various forms: lines, curves, hollows – each stroke expressing a conscious gesture, printed into the material like a mantra ready to deliver its message.
The colors are also an expression of vibrations that we can capture the emotion of, and that will take us on a journey into the universe of its creator.
