About the Artwork
Part of the portfolio, Ten Etching, this aquatint refers to the painting 'Blotter', which won first prize in John Moores 18, 1993. This was a turning point in Peter Doig´s career and the painting was sold than in 2007 in auction for £5.7m, a price that briefly made him Europe's most expensive living artist.
"The title refers to (amongst other things) the notion of one's being absorbed into a place or landscape, and to the process through which the painting developed: soaking paint into the canvas."
Based on a photograph of the artist’s brother standing on a frozen pond in Canada, the actual subject of the aquatint is the surrounding landscape numbing down the human presence.
About the Artist
One of the most renowned contemporary artists, Peter Doig, who was born in 1959, in Scotland, was the central figure in the revival of painting in the contemporary art scene during the '90s. At present his oneiric landscapes are highly sought after by world-leading collectors and museums.
