About this title

Synopsis:

The works of the British painter Peter Doig (* 1959 in Edinburgh), who divides his time between Trinidad, London, and New York, are densely atmospheric and sometimes uncanny. They are often based on found or private images, which the artist pieces together into dreamlike compositions full of melancholy and angst. Employing an unusual color palette and pos≠sessing an immense sensitivity for his medium, Doig creates superb images, following in the footsteps of great masters such as Paul Gauguin, Pierre Bonnard, and Henri Matisse. This publication presents him as an artist with a conceptual practice as a visual thinker who is not only fascinated by the history of painting but also the painting process itself. The large-format paintings and works on paper repro≠duced in the volume allow the viewer to share Doig s creative passion and his enthusiasm for the power of paint.

Review:

'Landscape painting, so often pronounced dead, comes back to ghostly life in the haunting and haunted scenes of Peter Doig.'
--The Independent

'As part of Phaidon's Contemporary Artists series, Peter Doig provides a comprehensive look at the artist's oeuvre...'
--Men s Vogue
