Sue Hubbard on Peter Doig

Peter Doig

Critic Sue Hubbard writes for website 3 Quarks Daily on Peter Doig’s current show at Michael Werner London:

“But what makes him so popular? What is the magic mix? Well, partly, it’s that his work is beautiful and easy to comprehend – figures, dappled snowstorms, and forests evocative of Gauguin and Matisse – often stolen images that have spent years being re-arranged in his head or carried around in sketch books, before making it into the world in luminous seductive colour.  There is about many of his works a hippy-trippy quality; creation through the lens of a dream.”
