Time Out says
Born in Scotland, Doig lived in Trinidad as a child before moving to Canada. This background perhaps explains the meeting of northern reticence and equatorial effusiveness—of abundant sunshine shadowed by personal gloom—that’s been a hallmark of his paintings. They also suggest what might happen if Whistler mugged Rothko in a back alley. For his first show at this gallery in four years, Doig includes work presented earlier this year at the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice.
