Description

Throughout his career, Richard MacDonald has drawn inspiration from the world of mythology. Aurora is a captivating representation of the Roman goddess of the Dawn, suspended in a position of protection and benediction above the world. Modeled by world-renowned aerialist Christine Van Loo, Aurora clearly references her classical lineage; the piece is rooted in figurative realism but retains an aura of modernity. MacDonald’s famed illusion of suspension works its magic, and the figure appears to levitate, supported by the billowing folds of crimson cloth that flow from her arms.
