    "I never try to create real spaces--only painted spaces. That's all I am interested in. That may be why there is never really any specific time or place (or sometimes even season...) in my paintings" (Peter Doig interview with G. Mackert, in Cher Peintre, exh. cat., Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou, 2002).
