Richard MacDonald American, b. 1946

Red Collection

Considered one of America’s greatest figurative sculptors, Richard MacDonald focused intently on the minerals and pigments of his patinas in 2014 and 2015. The results are seen in Richard MacDonald: red, which displays the artist’s creative immersion into the hue, the emotion and the narrative of color. Known worldwide as a post-modern master of emergent figurative sculpture, MacDonald explicates his patinas to the same nth degree of perfection as the bronze figures themselves. "Yin & Yang" and "Aurora", both created in 2014, initiated the technique that was later to evolve into a deep exploration of the role that color plays in figurative sculpture.
