Peter mcdonalds work is for the first time to be seen on the European mainland
Peter McDonald paints people and situations that he comes across in his daily life. Things that the viewers can relate are his subjects. His daily life of seeing, hearing, and feeling gives McDonald some visions.
The idea of communication between two characters are embodied through the large heads overlapping each other. The heads also merge with backgrounds and other subjects that create dissolution of boundaries between people and environment. McDonald considers the background as 'stage' that mirrors the real life. He uses it to play with the composition and colors.
