Considered to be one of Richard MacDonalds greatest achievements, Nureyev draws on the artist's highly developed sensitivity for the experience of the dancer, and displays all the quiet beauty of a private moment of a legend. In a moment of reverie, Nureyev steps off the rehearsal stage and into his dressing room. MacDonald juxtaposes elements of strength and grace in this work to create wonderful contrast and movement. 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 the artist’s creative immersion into the hue, the emotion, and narrative of color, represents a profound new direction in the artist's work.
