Peter Doig’s enigmatic paintings are characterized by their captivating combination of figurative depiction and dreamlike quality. Born in Edinberg, Scotland, Doig has become renowned for his landscapes, inspired by his own itinerant lifestyle, and by the physical progressions of modern society. Doig draws on personal memories from his childhood in Canada, as well as imagery sourced from photographs and films, to craft images that exist in fantastical, timeless spaces that feel both personal and universal. He does not seek to replicate these images in his paintings, instead, he uses them as a tool to create works that draw from both individual and collective memories of place. His worksdepict scenes ranging from urban, rural, and wooded landscapes to artists’ studios and lone figures in fishing boats, concentrated on the illusionistic properties of paint.
