Malcolm D. MacDougall III "Parallel Worlds"
The exhibition features sculptures and prints of works completed between the years 2008 and 2012. Malcolm D. MacDougall III: Parallel Worlds elaborates on this young New York artist’s investigation of natural and manmade networks, which become metaphorical landscapes on a large and small scale.
The work stems from a fascination with the natural sciences - in particular, microscopy, which is the field of using microscopes to view objects that cannot be seen by the unaided eye. The snapshots of bacteria and cellular platelets retrieved by this method are a metaphor for my sculptures in that, although stagnant, in reality they are imbued with the sense that the forms and surfaces will continue to undulate and recalibrate as time passes.
A graduate of the prestigious Conservatory of Art and Design at Purchase College, MacDougall has exhibited in various venues throughout New York State, most recently Wilderstein Historic Site in Rhinebeck in 2011 and Two Sculptors on Hudson/Emerging Form in Hastings-on-Hudson, Summer 2012.
Malcolm D. MacDougall III: Parallel Worlds coincides with the exhibition of MacDougall’s Microscopic Landscape (2011) in Union Square Triangle at Broadway between 14th and 15th Streets. The sculpture will remain on view through January 2013.
