"Gymnast" 1/3 Life Size Bronze Sculpture by Richard MacDonald

A master of figurative sculpture, Richard MacDonald has been transforming life into art, celebrating the beauty of the human form. Creating stunning bronze sculptures of acrobats, dancers, and athletes, he focuses both on their astounding physique and their inner states of being.

An homage to the dedication, desire, and determination of the athletes as they strive to be the best they can, “The Gymnast” from 1995 majestically celebrates the resilience of the human spirit. The work depicts an athlete skillfully balancing on a circle which symbolizes the world itself and the unity of humankind, sending a powerful message that this harmonic future is reachable. Rendered in realistic perfection, with an emphasis on every single muscle, the work reflects the artist’s exceptional artistry and craftsmanship.

A work of great emotional strength, it also reflects the guiding principle of the Olympic Games that the struggle is more important than victory. This is the reason why MacDonald was commissioned to create a 26-ft monumental version of the work for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. A donation from the artist to the state of Georgia, the city of Atlanta and Georgia World Congress Center, it remains in Georgia International Plaza as a gateway to the gymnastics pavilion.
