Peter Doig

Came across this artist again in Painting Today, after seeing some of his work here and there and hearing his name passed around.  He's a very successful contemporary painter who paints dreamlike images in a way that's hard to define.  His variation in handling paint while still unifying his work through theme or mood is fascinating to me.


  1. the first one reminds me of those blurred photograph paintings

  2. oh yeah, perhaps an early Richter influence. he does use collaged photo references sometimes.
