In Flight in Attitude, the clean lines of the dancers form suggest purity and strength. With fingers elegantly outstretched and back arched, she is the embodiment of athletic perfection and artistic refinement. Soaring with the effortless grace of a true ballerina, Flight in Attitude, truly captures a dancers movement and ethereally takes flight. Lithe and strong, with discipline and perfection evident from her pointed toe to her expressively outstretched hand, Richard MacDonald reveals the essence of dance.
In 2014 and 2015, Richard MacDonald focused intently on the minerals and pigments of his patina process - specifically on the color red. Shortly thereafter, the artist revealed his discoveries in a new exhibition entitled “Richard MacDonald: Red.” The exhibition, which highlights MacDonald's creative immersion into the hue, the emotion, and narrative of color, represents a profound new direction in the artist's work.
