Peter Doig Quotes

Quotes by Peter Doig - (6 quotes)

Peter Doig - From the Critics category:

I don't feel any real animosity towards critics when they write negative things. I think some are more perceptive than others. Some are very knowledgeable about painting. But it isn't something I have any influence over, so there isn't any point in worrying about it. (Peter Doig)

Peter Doig - From the Finishing category:

How do you complete a painting, really? There are paintings by so many different artists that are interesting precisely because they haven't really been completed. (Peter Doig)

Peter Doig - From the Painting category:

Painting doesn't have a function, not in the way that music or film does... I mean, you can dance to music. Music can be used for a soundtrack, so it has a function in that sense, beyond itself. But painting doesn't... But I do believe that painting has a purpose. (Peter Doig)

Peter Doig - From the Photography category:

A photo is like a map, a way of giving me a foot into a kind of reality I want... 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. (Peter Doig)

Peter Doig - From the Production category:

There could be a hundred paintings in every one painting, depending on when you stop. (Peter Doig)

Peter Doig - From the Selling category:

I sometimes wish I had never had to sell a painting. Every painting you make represents the time it was made and how you were feeling and what your influences were... You are never going to feel that way again, so you can never repeat it... (Peter Doig)
