Guided by the belief that art is an engagement with human beings, Richard MacDonald bases his studio practice on direct interaction with live models. His creative process involves a model, a dancer or an athlete the artist is portraying, a sculpting stand and tools and clay. The work is then born from the communication between the master and the subject, right in front of their eyes.
During this process, MacDonald usually spends two to four hours with the model, studying the dynamic and the mechanics of the poses. Interestingly, he refuses to take any photographs and makes a large number of sketches on paper and in clay. This singles out Richard MacDonald as one of the rare sculptors who does not resort to modern technologies, but keeps the method original and organic. “My goal is to make fine art, and fine art comes from the soul,” said the artist about his practice, revealing his interest in the immortal. This is why he creates in the lasting bronze, with a goal is to leave a lasting legacy for the generations to come.
