New Arrivals podcast | At the Edge of Town by Peter Doig

Peter Doig is one of the most exciting painters working today. He uses remembered and found images, often in photographic form, to help him express moods and experiences that only come alive through the act of painting itself through the use of forms and colour combinations as much abstract as representational.

The National Galleries of Scotland is thrilled to welcome Doig's work At the Edge of Town to the collection.

In this episode of New Arrivals, a series of podcasts introducing the artists behind some of the recent additions to the Scottish collection, Doig and Curator Keith Hartley discuss the work, which entered the collection in 2021. Scroll down to view the artworks discussed in the audio.
