|CIRQUE DU SOLEIL ART BY RICHARD MACDONALD
The Art of Richard MacDonald Presented by Cirque du Soleil
Located in the newly renovated "O" Theatre lobby, this new fine art gallery
features a collection of over 50 sculptures, original drawings, serigraphs and
lithographs by the most collected figurative sculptor in America, Richard
MacDonald. The gallery is born out of a relationship between Guy Laliberté,
Founder of Cirque du Soleil, and Richard MacDonald, a master of figurative
sculpture. MacDonald feels that he and Laliberté are "similar in life long
creative goals." His work focuses on the spectrum of performing life, capturing
a fleeting moment in time and immortalizing the grace, strength, joy and
discipline of dancers and acrobats. His work shares the creativity and
imagination that fuels Cirque du Soleil and conveys MacDonald's sense of
energy and passion.
Richard MacDonald has dedicated his life to creating works of art that reaffirm
all that is best in humanity. MacDonald has achieved international distinction
for his sculpture, paintings, and drawings, and has been the recipient of
innumerable national and international awards. Celebrating realism and the
expressive power of figurative sculpture, his work harnesses the sensuous
physicality of humanity’s heroic spirit. His work has been exhibited worldwide
including Japan, Korea, Italy, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. and can
be seen in galleries throughout the United States.
"The art of Richard MacDonald reveals the infinite beauty of the human body.
The characters he creates are playing forever in the Theatre of life." - Guy
Laliberté, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Cirque du Soleil
"Art transcends all human boundaries. It is a gift of almost inexplicable, magical
energy. When our hearts, through our senses, are touched by art, our lives are
enhanced." - Richard MacDonald, Artist
