鈥淚 think painting should evolve itself into a type of abstraction, to slowly dissipate into something else鈥澛鈥 Peter Doig quoted in 鈥淧eter Doig & Chris Ofili: Artists in Conversation鈥, Bomb Magazine, Fall 2007.

Peter Doig is one of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed painters of our time. His dreamlike paintings are characterized by their captivating combination of figurative depiction and techniques of abstract painting. The richly-lyered works of Peter Doig mostly depict people and architecture in landscapes of seductive beauty, often conveying melancholy, tranquility, solitude and tension at once. Doig states that he never intentionally sets out to be 鈥渄eliberately sinister, but I always wanted to make paintings that told stories and suggested things.鈥 He聽draws on imagery sourced from found photographs, films, as well as聽personal childhood memories, allowing him to blur personal experiences, pop culture and art history in his paintings.聽Despite drawing inspiration from photographs and films, Peter Doig never directly refers to them but employs them for their evocative presence.聽In 1984, an exhibition at Victoria Miro Gallery was short-listed for the prestigious Turner Prize. A major retrospective of Doig’s work was presented by Tate Britain in 2008.

British, b. 1959, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, based in Trinidad.
