About the Artwork

Nostalgic and yet familiar, Country-rock is distinctly Doig. The view from the passenger seat on a car of the rainbow tunnel off the Don Valley Parkway, or DVP, is a trademark for every Toronto resident.


"A lot of the paintings portray a sense of optimism that can often be read as being a little desperate, like the image of a rainbow painted around the entrance to an underpass”

Peter Doig


The etching refers to the painting Country-rock (wing-mirror), painted in 1999, which is one of Peter Doig’s most recognizable works. Its characteristics of memory, dreamy landscape, and timeless definitely are part of the artist visual code.
