Distant Egghug is a zine by artist Peter McDonald. In this playful sequential story one of the artist’s figures, with its archetypal head halo, embraces a large amorphous object. Beginning as a tiny dot on the landscape and approaching with every turn of the page, their world is a vibrant, parallel universe onto which the viewer can project their own reality.
Peter McDonald is a Japan-born artist living and working between London and Tokyo. His bold, colourful paintings examine human behaviour through scenes from modern life – from cafés and art galleries to basketball courts and carpet shops, reimagined in surreal, abstract landscapes. Humorous and always unexpected, he works with a playful approach to perspective and form.
