Jock Macdonald’s career as an artist took him from design and illustration to landscape painting and, from the early 1930s onward, to a lifelong search for expression through abstraction. His quest was guided by the most current discussions of art and aesthetics and of mathematical and scientific theories. As a teacher, Macdonald integrated these ideas into his classroom; in the studio, they informed his artistic practice. At the base of that search was his belief that design and art—even abstract art—must be rooted in the natural world.
