BIO

Alexia Weill was born in Paris and now lives and works near Montreux Switzerland. 

She transforms the stone into round and pure shape. She likes to open a dialog with the stone to give it another life. Her art is known for her Circular Impressions, circles curved in all forms of stone, marble, granite, serpentine, limestone, basalt, etc.

Her sculptures have been exhibited all over the world, including Switzerland, France, Great-Britain, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Dubai and the United States.

Alexia Weill was born and raised  in Paris where she studied Film Direction.

Considering her true passion for sculpture and drawing, she decided to take drawing and clay sculpture classes at the world renown Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris.

In 2005, she moved to Switzerland where she has been living since. She focused completely on her sculpture and chose the stone as medium.

In 2015, she made her first public commission for the 800 years of the Commune of Villeneuve by creating a sculpture for the new medieval garden.

In 2017, she got a commission for her monumental sculpture “Cercle Originels” shown at the Montreux Biennale 2017. The sculpture of  2.40 meters is carved in a single block of white marble.

In 2019 she was appointed as the Art Director and Curator of the exhibition organized by the Vaud Government in partnership with  the city of Lausanne to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the women voting rights.

Alexia Weill is a staunch supporter of womens rights. She supports many causes and has been donating artwork every year for many years to the Red Cross to be auctionned at the prestigious annual Red Cross Ball in Geneva
