The Art of Richard MacDonald
Richard MacDonald has always been an artist who soaks up the experiences of everyday life through intense observation, and then transform that raw material into works of art that reflect internal states of being, not simply the physical. The Contemporary Nude Spires is a newly released series of sculptures that takes the artist a step further along the path of re-envisioning the role of the figure in contemporary art. Contemporary both in style and concept, the self-contained nature of the individual figures makes a statement about independence and strength: elements Richard MacDonald never overlooks in his understanding of the female identity. This series highlights an interesting paradox: they work as purely abstract shapes, while being completely figurative and representative in nature.
For the past three decades Richard MacDonald has been making an important and unique contribution to contemporary sculpture. In the course of his career he has gathered a broad following of dedicated and enthusiastic collectors, and garnered many prestigious awards, honors, and significant public commissions across the globe. His body of work stands apart as distinctive and unique.
