The expression “losing yourself in the wilderness” takes on new meaning in works by Peter Doig, Sarah Anne Johnson and Tim Gardner. Here ambiguous, hallucinatory vistas collide with sublime, pastoral scenes and the idea of the ruggedness of the hinterland clashes with its ultimate fragility. In each case, the realism of the works is interrupted by a sense of sheer uncanny.These multifarious landscapes mix autobiography with illusion and the banal with the extraordinary, offering striking images that suggest a shift in our perceived relationship with the natural world.
