This exhibition brings together a set of eight drawings and 15 paintings dating from 1989 to 2002. Presented during the summer at Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht it is the first monographic exhibition of Peter Doig in France.
From his early achievements, painting by Peter Doig painting itself as a large format, without any conceptual reference. Many of the paintings that offer a range of colors, pink, orange, green, dark blue, unusual. The characters, often isolated, are lost in a nature that dominates. The German Romantics, Symbolism, Munch, Edward Hopper, but also are the references that come to mind to those of snow and forest landscapes, the effects of reflections in the water, the starry nights.
