About this title

Synopsis:

This first monograph introduces the bright, cartoony figurative painting of the Tokyo-born, London-based artist Peter McDonald. Designed to resemble a children's picture book, this text-free volume delivers a colorful world inhabited by people engaged in everyday activities--teaching, relaxing, making bread, holding hands, buying wool, dressing hair. McDonald's figures are constructed with an elementary graphic language. They have a cartoon-like simplicity and waver at the point where figuration might tip at any moment into abstraction. Human forms veer towards the geometric: circles stand in for heads, flat planes describe rooms and crude poses denote narrative. Yet these simplifications appear to create a community of super-humans living in a world that has a harmonious transparency. McDonald is represented in London by Kate MacGarry gallery.

Shipping Terms:

PLEASE NOTE FOR SHIPMENTS TO DESTINATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Because we ship by trackable means (UPS to Canada, Global Express Mail through the U.S. Postal Service to all other countries) and because the vast majority of our books far exceed the 2.2-pound reference weight used in the "Shipping Rates" chart, shipping to addresses outside the United States can be extremely expensive. (As examples, the postage cost for a 6-pound parcel is $41.75 to Great Britain, $34.95 to France and $41.20 to Germany.) We will always contact you with the exact shipping charge before sending your international order so you may decide whether to confirm or cancel the order. FOR SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: We ship by United Parcel Service (which does not deliver to post office boxes) at a charge of $10.00 for the first book and $3.00 for each additional book on the same order. We will provide you with the UPS tracking number for your order. Expedited shipping (UPS Next-Day or Second-Day Air) is available to most addresses in the continental United States. The cost of these services is dependent on the weight of the shipment, but we will not exceed the charge of $15.00 for the first book and $9.00 for each additional book without prior confirmation from you. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.
