Mar Gorriz was born in Barcelona on 29 November 1961. There, she spent 1979 to 1984 formally studying sculpture at the "Escola Massana" before moving to Alt Empordà, Girona.
Alt Empordà proved to be the ideal site to inspire Mar's sculpture. Close to nature, its transient colours and light she has found a voice with which to express her feelings. Basing these figures upon her own life experiences they are incredibly emotive works. The viewer is encouraged to identify with the characters and situations depicted.
The figures' constant evolution reflects Mar's desire to continue communicating with the wider world through sculpture.
