During the last century few worthy artists have aspired to the demanding task of realistically representing the human form and consciousness. Richard MacDonald‘s lifelong passion of the human form is reflected in the performers and athletes immortalized in his captivating sculptures. This is the passion that led him to the performers of Cirque du Soleil. Recognizing their strong artistic affinity, the creator of Cirque du Soleil, Guy Laliberte and Richard Macdonald have developed a partnership that brings the world an artist experience of the theatrical wonders of Cirque du Soleil: sculptures that reflect the unique, 21st-century art form that is Cirque du Soleil.
From the quicksilver fluidity of a performers graceful movement Richard MacDonald is able to create sculpture that captures the joy of life itself and celebrates the desire to perform beyond boundaries. It is certainly no coincidence that both the art of Cirque du Soleil and the art of Richard MacDonald have emerged at the same point in history. The unique gifts of the sculptor and the striking creativity of his own vision combine to immortalize the essential magic of the Cirque experience and give it an immutable life that is far more than the sum of its parts.
