Biography

Biography

Joseph McDonnell is an American sculptor whose work ranges in size from small to monumental in materials that include bronze, granite, steel and glass.  His sense of mass and space produce an inner logic in the forms he creates.  He references ancient civilizations with symbolism dealing with the primordial objects of life:  sun, water, columns, arches.  “My works are personal statements of my faith in man’s profound determination to survive.”‚Äč

McDonnell received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Fine Arts from the University of Notre Dame and also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy, and at the Harvard School of Design. He has produced more than 150 major public and private commissions throughout the United States.
