I'm also interested in creating a lasting legacy for collectors because bronze will last for thousands of years so I'm not really selling the art to this particular collector but it is being passed on.

I've had over a dozen models come in and pose fro me live for these new Cirque pieces. Cirque is a world-wide phenomenon and they are just incredible athletes. I've been to all the performances and am really fascinated by all of their productions.

Richard MacDonald
There is a connection between me and the collectors, and as admirers of the work they tell me about the differences the pieces are able to make in their lives on a daily basis.
Richard MacDonald

I create for artistic intent only and do everything from life.

Richard MacDonald
I was tired of illustration. You'd work so hard on a commission and it would go in to a magazine, and you'd turn the page and it was gone.
Richard MacDonald

The greatest success is creating whatever you want without conditions. I don't do commissions unless I really want to, because it's like having a job.

Richard MacDonald
I can actually feel the interior body of a dancer. I have the ability to capture a split second... I want you to be hit with whatever the essence is of this sculpture.
Richard MacDonald

At any one time, I'll have 30 to 40 pieces going on in the studio, so this is not economically driven at all.

Sculpture will last a lot longer than painting. Richard MacDo

I cannot tell you how many people, powerful people, come to my studio and they are in tears they are so moved by what they see.
