Brought up on Lewis and later Orkney, MacDonald’s work is understandably marine based. Working with age old metal work techniques, he strives to produce contemporary and unique pieces of art. His artistic endeavour is to observe and capture fleeting moments of nature, from the calm and tension before a trout strikes to the pure excitements of the sudden, synchronised turn of a mass herring shoal. The result is the expression of an emotional response to something very private, a moment shared between human and nature, suggesting a balance and a suspension, using the brooding colours of the background to saturate the work with a contemplative stillness.
The move from Orkney to Perthshire brought with it a new dimension to Sam’s work. The influence of the move can be seen in the inclusion of trees, insects and birds, which give his pieces a sense of time and season.
