What the Gallery Says: Not much! “Michael Werner Gallery, London is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by Peter Doig. This is the artist’s first exhibition of new works in London since 2012.”
Why It’s Worth a Look: Doig’s haunting, almost classical, new paintings capture the anxiety of contemporary life, juxtaposing apparently dreamlike and pleasant scenery with a latent, potentially much darker, reality.
What It Looks Like:
“Peter Doig” is on view through February 17, 2018.
Michael Werner is located at 22 Upper Brook Street, London W1K 7PZ.
