"The art of Maxwell Doig is immediately recognisable as his, not only because of his very individual deployment of various painterly techniques, but also, primarily indeed, because of his distinctive vision. Such skill in purely representational painting is rare indeed these days, but one does not win the Villiers David Prize, as Doig did, for skill alone. What makes Doig stand out, then and now is his vision of life itself. As he puts it, In an age when everything is moving so fast, I'm interested in portraying stillness and quiet. And who, in the light of Vermeer and Hammershoi, can argue with that?"
