In this exhibition devoted to the British painter Peter Doig (*1959 in Edinburgh), who divides his time between Trinidad, London and New York, the Fondation Beyeler presents the artist’s major monumental paintings and a selection of works on paper. Doig will also be creating a brand new mural for the museum. His paintings, most of which portray landscapes, are often based on private or found visual material. In a method akin to sampling, Doig processes these fragments of our civilization into dream-like pictures full of melancholy and anxiety, whose palette, luminosity, and enigmatic atmosphere exert a powerful fascination. He thereby continues the tradition of great masters such as Gauguin, Bonnard, and Matisse.
