Drawing on his lifelong fascination with the colorful world of the performer, Richard MacDonald has highlighted one of the central themes of his neo-figurative work: the human being as chameleon, illusionist, performer. This focus reveals insights into works created early in the artist's career, and gives us a platform of heightened understanding from which to appreciate recent creations. Like mimes, we wear masks; like dancers we give physical expression to our joys and sorrows, like the circus performers we strive to make the impossible seem effortless: we are all performers. Richard MacDonald's intutive understanding of this truth unites the body of his work, and comes clsoe to the essence of his artistic vision: for the world is truly a stage.
