Peter Doig

Peter Doig's paintings have a tendency to disorientate, even when they depict recognisable imagery such as figures and buildings. Doig invites us to consider the status of the people, places and events that populate his pictures, whether they exist in private or public realms, in personal or shared experiences. The refuges and defences against nature often seen in Doig's work are a kind of visual corollary for such considerations. His paintings bear witness to an artist measuring the gaps between thought and language, painting as an individual pursuit and a shared experience.
