Peter Doig’s pictorial world is at once strange, romantic - and hypermodern. Internationally he (b. 1959 in Edinburgh) is considered to be one of the most fascinating painters of our time – and has achieved the status of a ’contemporary classic’.
Doig masters techniques from both past and present – and the layers of paint on his canvases often act as small alchemical miracles, the eye can enjoy and frolic in.
He bases his works on a private stock of images – photographs, magazine clippings and record covers, film material and found objects, which he incorporates in his paintings in a new way. Doig’s pictorial world is in every way magical. The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with Fondation Beyeler in Riehen – and presents 30 of Doig’s oil paintings in large formats and a selection of his graphic works on paper
The exhibition is supported by C. L. David Foundation and Collection.
