Grounded in more than a decade as a premier illustrator, the drawings and paintings of Richard MacDonald display a tenderness, a supreme artistry, and a delicacy the belies the artist’s strength and muscle borne of years of sculpting clay. His lines are sure and elegant; graceful and contained. In MacDonald’s figures we see a purity of form and expression both classical and modern; a dichotomy both balanced and intriguing that speaks to his deep love for the very act of portraying a form on paper.
