The most collected contemporary figurative bronze sculptor at work today, Richard MacDonald is at once both passionately devoted to his art and possessed with a rare talent for creating sensitive and moving images that touch the heart of the viewer. His creative zeal is accompanied by an expertís knowledge of the human form and an unrelenting demand for the highest degree of quality in his work. For the 23 years of his artistic career, as well as during his studies at the prestigious Art Center College of Design, where he graduated cum laude in 1971, California native MacDonald has consistently distinguished himself with an incredible talent and energy which he translates into evocative and compelling artworks-- whether bronzes, paintings, drawings or fine prints. As one of the nation's foremost illustrators, MacDonald's sports reportage earned him representation in the NFL and NBA Halls of Fame and the permanent collection of the National Art Museum of Sport. His work has been acquired for the permanent collections of corporations such as AT&T, IBM, and Anheuser-Busch, as well as important private collections.
Each year MacDonald is honored with numerous one-man shows across the country and his work is represented in over 50 galleries nationally and internationally. Ongoing sculptural projects include three life-size bronzes from MacDonald's "Mime" and "Joie de Vivre" Suites and a life-sized pas de deux from his "Ballet" Suite. The National Sculpture Society selected The Gymnast for their 1995 Annual New York Exhibition. The monumental work Flair Across America: The Gymnast was installed outside the Georgia Dome, where the gymnastic events for the 1996 Olympics were held.
