The quality, diversity and uniqueness of Xavier Mascaró’s (Paris, 1965) sculptures, drawings, installations and stage designs make him one of the most important Spanish artists on today’s art scene. Mascaró graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in 1988. His sculptural career includes numerous experiences, works and exhibitions, both at a national and international level. Although his career began in the late eighties in the field of painting, his interests soon extended into volumetric and spatial sculpture. Initially, the material chosen to flesh out his work was cast iron, as can be seen in many of the pieces in this exhibition; a noble and ancient material, which he has managed to turn into a source of new sculptural solutions making it a typically Spanish tradition, alongside sculptors like Julio González, Oteiza, Chillida, Cristina Iglesias, Juan Muñoz and Susana Solano, while maintaining a personal language. Later Mascaró incorporates new elements and procedures into his works, such as stone, ceramics, resins, glass, bronze, textiles, plaster, tin, fibre, and even video, in this way extending the registers of its timeless and spiritual sculptural syntax.
