*The National Museum of Modern Art wil be open from June 12. (By appointment only.)
Painter of romantic, but uncanny landscapes, Peter Doig (b. 1959) has been named one of the most important artists in the world today. Doig produces paintings that combine diverse imagery from the compositions and motifs of works by modern painters such as Gaugin, Van Gogh, Matisse, and Munch, to scenes from films, advertising graphics, and the landscapes of places he has lived, such as Canada and Trinidad.
The mystical fascination with Doig’s paintings may be attributed to the artist’s use of images seemingly seen somewhere, to present worlds we have most certainly never seen. Inviting viewers on a journey of the imagination through painting, this exhibition covers the artist’s career from early work to the latest offerings.
