Newfoundland and Labrador’s nationally acclaimed sculptor and visual artist Morgan MacDonald is known for his large monumental bronze works and sculptural interpretations of Newfoundland history and culture.
Working in the tradition of lost wax method he creates from a his foundry/studio in picturesque Logy Bay. Born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland his works are realistic and technical in nature with an emphasis on expressive emotive qualities.
As a student enrolled in the Fine Arts program at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College he was first introduced to the bronze foundry process. After leaving fine art school he began a three year sculpture apprenticeship. During this time Morgan enrolled in Memorial University’s School of Business where he completed his Business Degree and began developing the idea of his first major work titled “The Rower”. This work over time has become his signature piece and a local icon for the City of St. John’s.
His art can be found as far away as Sopron, Hungary and has been unveiled by notable dignitaries including Prince Charles and the Prime Minister of Canada. Other prominent works of his include the Sealer’s Memorial in Elliston, “A Time” on George Street, Corner Brook’s Remembrance Square, Gander War Memorial and the Conception Bay South Monument of Honour.
