Richard MacDonald: The Art of Movement: Gallery Reception: June 1, 2019 1-4 PM

1 - 30 June 2019

Richard MacDonald captures moments of movement to create iconic visions. His life-long knowledge and understanding of artistic anatomy and the dynamics of movement allow him to sculpt the fleeting images of the performer - moving rapidly, into a single gesture and “pose” that best captures the essence and feeling of that experience in motion. 

“I work exclusively from life, and my models don’t hold static poses, which become stiff and unnatural. I feel that movement, and in that magical, inexplicable process I am able to translate that experience into a sculpture that carries with it that spark of life.” Richard MacDonald
