Scott McDonald is a Sculptor and researcher from North West England living in Liverpool. He studied Sculpture at Gray’s School of Art, went on to complete a Master’s in Research at Liverpool John Moores University, and continues to study at PhD level in the field of Public Sculpture. McDonald has spent the last 10 years working with Sculptors across the North West, helping them to deliver ambitious large-scale public sculpture projects. During this time, he has completed works in metal, wood, ice and ceramics, installing a variety of large objects across the North of England. Scott is currently the Production Manager at Granby Workshop CIC, the award-winning architectural ceramics workshop based in Liverpool.
Scott’s most recent work is influenced by the De Stijl movement, the works of Georges Vantongerloo, and the central philosophies of Russian Constructivism. As a result his practise focuses on reducing Sculpture to a simplified form, primitive abstract constructions that consider the very basic principles of Sculpture. His outcomes are disguised as industrial objects, ode to a childhood in post-industrial England, small scale monuments to contemporary life that bear the names of lost/forgotten civilisations.
McDonald has exhibited his work in England and Scotland and continues to make work for private sale. He is a guest lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University and published researcher, specialising in Monumental Sculpture.
