"Peter Doig" at the Beyeler Foundation, Riehen.
A polyvalent artist, Peter Doig lives and works in Trinidad, London and New York.
His large-scale canvases most often portray human beings amidst anonymous landscapes and take inspiration from iconographic personal or abandoned documents. These canvases depict melancholy, in the romantic sense of the word, in which one can lose oneself. His representations of nature are often full of mystery, equally exotic and nostalgic, appealing yet menacing. The exhibition displays a many number of his larger works as well as engravings, which emphasise the inventiveness of the artist and which are sometimes used as the starting point of his work.
Until 22nd March
