"The immediacy of Ms. McDonald's vision is evident."
- Janet Kutner, the Dallas Morning News
Light and color invest our visual world with spatial, tonal, figurative, narrative, and emotional content. Light/dark relationships assume meanings of universal significance. Pure, emitted light is evocative, whether it comes from a campfire, a Coke machine, a color television, or an illuminated fiber optic.
One of my artistic goals is to blend aesthetic structures and principles with technology, the work emerging from a spirit of inquiry and experimentation. I strive to create work that induces the experience of aesthetic arrest, that sense of a suspension of time and place that artists themselves feel in the act of creating a work. An art work must make a deep emotional connection to the viewer; an art work must explicitly convey the notion that it could exist as nothing but itself.
