Lot Essay

‘Doig paints certain architectural structures – cabins, houses, and apartment buildings rather than churches – and deliberately puts them in places like the snow and the woods, in order that we remember that all of our (social) positions remain relative, even when isolated.’ (T.R. Myers, ‘Jumping the gun, better than dead: what’s next in Peter Doig’s paintings’, Peter Doig: Blizzard seventy-seven, exh. cat., Whitechapel Art Gallery, London 1998, p. 70)
