We decided to publish this book to educate collectors and non-collectors alike about art that celebrates the human spirit, art that moves people- Richard MacDonald.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
From the time man first discovered he could carve and paint images on the stone walls of caves, art has communicated universal experiences to a larger community. Figurative art in particular has the potential to convey the emotional essence of an individual at a particular moment in time. Pivotal artworks representing the human form - such as Nike of Samothrace (the Winged Victory), ca. 200-190 B.C.; Michelangelo's David, 1501-1504; and Auguste Rodin's The Thinker, 1880 - have inspired both audiences and artists for centuries. An artist's desire to express form and feeling can infuse an artwork with a quality that withstands the passage of time. Sharing this desire for universal expression, Richard MacDonald creates dynamic, sensitive works using a range of media, reflecting both the artist's passion and the variety of human passions that make us who we are.
