'Ski Jacket' was painted from a newspaper photograph of learner skiers on a Japanese mountain. The painted scene is mirrored imperfectly on both panels, producing a disorientating and dreamlike landscape. The sense of unreality is increased by Peter Doig’s choice of colours: frosted pinks and golds. Doig often paints snow scenes because ‘snow somehow has the effect of drawing you inwards and is frequently used to suggest retrospection and nostalgia and make-believe’. But the sugary colour has an intensity which is disquieting. See it in Room 11 at @tatemodern#SkiJacket#PeterDoig#Tate#TateModern#Winterpaintings
