Michael Werner Gallery, New York is exhibiting new paintings by Peter Doig. This is the artist’s first presentation of new works in the United States since 2009. Doig is recognized as one of the most inventive and original artists painting today. Few artists of his generation have done as much to explore the evocative potential of paint and its capacity for depth and meaning. Doig’s unlikely palette and varied approach to the material of paint mediate literal sources into scenes evocative of dreams or recollections. At times melancholic or contemplative, Doig’s paintings transport viewers outside the realm of normal daily experience. This exhibition will feature new paintings, including works which were first presented at Venice’s Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa earlier this year. Exhibition of his magic realism – not to be missed.
