Donald A. Quincy

Donald A. Quincy Sculptor. Musician. Educator. I am primarily concerned with the creative process rather than the end product. Wood is the material I most often use.

Of all the visual elements, shape and form are the most compelling for me; however, it is the relationships that I may establish that intrigue me most. I usually work abstractly and eschew all representation or symbolism. It, and my tools, are my partners. They frequently suggest the direction of the work. Music, the most abstract of all the arts, also has a strong influence on the character of th

e piece. The work is most always improvisational and my first foray (cut) into the material is often intuitive and arbitrary. This serves to establish the problem. New shapes and forms are created either for tension or balance. When all of the various visual weights are counterbalanced, there is resolution. The problem for me ... is solved.

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Boston University and did graduate work in Guadalahara, Mexico through the University of Arizona. Additional studies were undertaken at:

- Portland School of Art

- Metropolitan College - Comparative Arts

- Massachusetts College of Art - Computer Graphics

For thirty-three years I was the Art Director for the Canton Public Schools and teacher at the high school prior to retirement in 1997. For twenty years I designed theater sets and lighting for student productions and for Repertory Four of New York, a professional theater company. Music has always been an important part of my life, performing on trombone with numerous big bands and baritone horn with the Bridgewater Antiphonal Brass Society and the Boston University Alumni Concert Band.
