Image: Peter Doig, White Canoe, Oil on CanvasI just uploaded this well shot (thank Goodness) and extremely interesting interview with the contemporary landscape painter, Peter Doig at his exhibition in the Schirn Kusthalle (Title link). The artist talks about what to paint, why he paints ("it's the unknown; that's what makes it daunting, that's what makes it exciting") and some of the sources for his work. It includes informative close up shots of the artwork (no shakey cam -you can see all it's abstractions - like a modern day Impressionist painter); as well as posters he has designed for the Thursday night cinema - free to anyone who wants to attend- he holds in his warehouse studio in Trinidad. Wouldn't I want to go there!
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, here's a picture.
