2012: Singapore Opera Gallery Exhibition
“Through my art work, I hope to increase the appreciation and understanding of figurative sculpture throughout Singapore and the rest of Asia.” - Richard MacDonald
MacDonald’s ‘Heroic’ works mark the sculptor’s greatest legacy. Deriving from the romantic term often used in art history, 'Heroic' denotes larger-than-life scale. Known for working exclusively with live models, MacDonald's fascination with the human form and with mankind’s broad emotional range inspired him to create dynamic, sensitive works that are infused with a quality that withstands the passage of time. Drawing inspiration from Cirque du Soleil performers, Olympic athletes and Royal Ballet dancers, Richard Macdonald encapsulated each model’s beauty, athleticism and spirit in his creations.
In the Fall of 2012, Richard MacDonald's premiered his Heroic collection in Singapore, both in the lively streets of Orchard Road and in his exhibit, Magical Energies, at the Singapore Opera Gallery.
