‘Doig at The Mac –Belfast’ is taken from a series of paintings by Fox that document gallery interiors. This piece is a painting of Peter Doig’s show, held locally at the MAC gallery Belfast back in November 2012. Curated by Hugh Mulholland, Fox describes the event as ground breaking for contemporary art and painting within Northern Ireland.
The painting itself is clean and cool, with the pinks, greens and oranges of the exhibited paintings emphasised against the polished grey of the floor and strong whites of the walls and strip lighting. There are no members of the public milling about, nor any staff, the attention is on the space, the architecture, and the artwork at rest.
