For Pat McDonald, the term “Virtuosity” is best demonstrated by an expert of gymnastic dance. The mastery of performance as well as the ambitious creativity witnessed when an inspired dancer performs is the moment of grace which McDonald’s sculpture illustrates.

“Virtuosity” is a large red and black painted steel fabrication. It continues a series of work which McDonald has been exploring for many years. In “Virtuosity” his signature steel rings float easily around three gently rolled diamonds, reminiscent of the form, motion, and strength of an exceptional gymnast, mid-routine. The work is so large as to be imposing, but crafted with care enough to maintain elegance. It is clearly the work of a virtuoso.
