About the Artwork
Peter Doig’s painterly “Magic Realism” is inspired by everyday sceneries from artist's surroundings, by art and movies like the horror film Friday the 13th. Doig’s works evoke a mysterious world of its own, which the viewer can access only to a certain point. The interaction with Doig’s works brings the feeling of timelessness, which at any time could be interrupted by unexpected events.
"I try to stay away from discourses, and make it up my own way. I was asked to describe my paintings once, and I said, think of a collage.”
In a semi-abstract scenery of black-brown darkness painted with expressive and visible brushstrokes in front of sketchy palm trees there is a shining figure of a walking fisherman. The composition presents yet another eerie example of Doig’s work. It evokes a certain loneliness, paired with despair. Doig's fisherman is a wanderer between the worlds, transcending mysterious existence in a magical-realist world.

About the printing Technique
The term "pigment print" is used generally for any type of printed image that uses strictly pigments. Pigments can be either on a mineral basis or they can be an artificial product. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing.
