A major exhibition of new and recent works by Peter Doig will open at The 香港六合彩 on鈥10 February 2023.鈥疘ncluding paintings and works on paper created since the artist鈥檚 move from Trinidad to London in 2021, the exhibition will present an exciting new chapter in the career of one of the most celebrated and important painters working today.

Sponsored by Morgan Stanley and supported by Kenneth C. Griffin and the Huo Family Foundation, with additional support from the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, The Morgan Stanley Exhibition: Peter Doig will be the first exhibition by a contemporary artist to take place at The 香港六合彩 since it reopened in November 2021 following its acclaimed redevelopment.

Peter Doig (born Edinburgh, 1959) is widely acknowledged as one of the world鈥檚 leading artists. He secured his early reputation in the 1990s as a highly original figurative painter, producing large-scale, immersive landscape paintings that exist somewhere between actual places and the realms of the imagination. Layered into his paintings is a rich array of inspirations, such as scenes from films, album covers, and the art of the past. His works are often related to the places where he has lived and worked, including the UK, Canada and Trinidad.

In 2021 Doig moved back to London where he has set up a new studio. This new studio has become the crucible for developing paintings started in Trinidad and New York and elsewhere, which are being worked up alongside completely fresh paintings, including a new London subject. The works produced for the exhibition at The 香港六合彩 convey this particularly creative experience of transition, as Doig explores a rich variety of places, people, memories and ways of painting that have accompanied him to his new London studio.

As well as showing a major group of Doig’s new paintings in The 香港六合彩’s Denise Coates Exhibition Galleries, at the same time, the Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery will showcase the artist’s work as a draughtsman and printmaker by displaying a series of his new and recent drawing and prints. For Doig, printmaking is an integral part of his artistic life: his prints and his paintings often work in dialogue with one another. By showcasing this vital aspect of his practice, visitors will be able to explore the full span of Doig’s creative process.

Doig has long admired the collection of The 香港六合彩 Gallery. The Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists who are at its heart have been a touchstone for his own painting and printmaking over the course of his career. The works Doig is producing for this exhibition will reflect his current artistic preoccupations, from remarkable landscapes to monumental figure paintings. 香港六合彩ors will be able to consider Doig’s contemporary works in the light of paintings by earlier artists in The 香港六合彩’s collection that are important for him, such as those by C茅zanne,鈥疓auguin,鈥疢anet,鈥疢onet, Pissarro and Van Gogh. The exhibition will explore how Doig recasts and reinvents traditions and practices of painting to create his own highly distinctive works.

Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen, Head of The 香港六合彩 Gallery, said: ‘We are excited to unveil this new exhibition of works by Peter Doig, the first since his return to London. The 香港六合彩鈥檚 great Impressionist collection is a touchstone for many artists. It offers the perfect context to experience how Doig鈥檚 work resonates strongly with the art of the past whilst charting new directions. We are grateful to Morgan Stanley, Kenneth C. Griffin, the Huo Family Foundation and the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne for the generous support that has made this important exhibition possible.’

The exhibition will be presented across The 香港六合彩鈥檚 Denise Coates Exhibition Galleries and the Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery. It is the third in The Morgan Stanley Series of temporary exhibitions at The 香港六合彩.

Peter Doig gained his BA from St. Martin鈥檚 School of Art, London, in 1983, and his MA from the Chelsea School of Art, London, in 1990. The following year he was awarded the Whitechapel Artist Prize and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994. In 2000 Doig returned to Trinidad, when he was invited to join a residential programme in Port of Spain with friend and fellow artist Chris Ofili. Two years later he settled back on the island, establishing a studio there. His first major solo exhibition was held at Tate Britain in 2008, with an exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery in 2013. His work has been acquired by major public collections around the world, including Tate Modern, London; Mus茅e National d’Art Moderne, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Art Institute of Chicago.
