"Peter Doig Quotes"


+ I constantly have to negotiate with my doubts.

+ I'm not trying to make paintings look like photos. I want to make paintings using photos as a reference, the way painters did when photography was first invented.

+ I am always interested in what we miss when we try to focus on what we see. For example, when you take a photo you will always feel a bit disappointed after the exposure, because it's never representing what you perceived when you took it.

+ I don't think my paintings are reactionary in the way they look back. I hope they are about looking forward. I believe in the future of art, but not necessarily in the way it is told. I find a lot of work done 100 years ago more forward looking than what was done in the last ten years.

+ I also learned that you are affected by your environment, even if you try not to be. Color, light, that is because you want to do justice to it and you also get excited by it. It doesn't mean that I will do a city painting if I go back to London.


+ In some way it is trying to find images that have some sort of resonance rather than meaning.
