Canada Speaks to Peter Doig

0
Peter Doig was born in 1959 in Scotland, lived in Trinidad and Canada, moving back to Britain in 1979. It is easy to see the influences of these countries played in Doig’s work. Doig is an expert in mood and texture; his work draws the viewer into the scene with his ability to create depth and feeling. The results are often solitary, cold and bleak without being dull or flat.

Art attracts us as like moths are attracted by flames. Abstract art is no exception, but it can be difficult to define abstract art because it is a form of art that evades definition and classification.
