Angelic Crystal, Atelier

Richard Macdonald
Angelic Crystal, Atelier, 2010.
Cast-Carrera marble sculpture.
Signed and numbered in the mold.

Intrigued by the stature and carriage of a particular figure, MacDonald pursued Angelic Crystal, the study of a ballerina in the studio. Inspired by a continuing appreciation of dance, the artist encountered a uniquely beautiful, exceptionally tall ballerina possessed of a gazelle’s elegance and a muse’s face.

MacDonald witnessed her dancing while creating many drawings of the elements of her presence: the result is a classic bust whose arms stretch back like the wings of an angel to capture the elegance of her long, graceful lines. © Richard Macdonald.
