“Duncan’s goal, with much of his work, is to encourage audiences to re-think the very means by which they approach art, and in turn, question their assumptions concerning perception and subjectivity.” ~ Artist profile on the Blackwood Gallery feature on the multidisciplinary Running With Concepts: The Sonic Edition event, 2013.
Showcased alongside Janis Demkiw and Corwyn Lund on the Blackwood Gallery website as part of the 2011 exhibition The Good Host: http://www.blackwoodgallery.ca/exhibitions/2011/thegoodhost.html
“[MacDonald’s] artistic production is in many ways humorous, almost mischievous, and certainly playful. In a nutshell, his videos and sound installations are expertly engineered inventions based on dreamy observations, poetical perceptions, and imaginative geniality.” ~ Review of Little Revolutions, an exhibition of work by Duncan MacDonald presented at Rodman Hall Art Centre through Fall, 2010.
