Peter Doig's haunting and atmospheric work is often compared to the early 20th century paintings of the Symbolists and Surrealists, and has helped to revive the Romantic spirit. This full-colour monograph is the largest publication dedicated to this important artist's work. It is complemented by a selection of short stories exclusively written for the book by the renowned author Margaret Atwood, and will thus draw a wide literary audience. This catalogue of an important solo exhibition of artist Peter Doig's works on paper collects the artist's recent watercolors, which have garnered major international acclaim, into one fully illustrated volume. Doig's vibrant color combinations and techniques such as dripping and staining lend his works a dreamlike quality, though his images are based in reality. Doig draws upon photographs, film stills, postcards, paintings, and even album covers, reworking and reinterpreting them, to explore notions of memory and fantasy. Befitting this work, the beautiful colour illustrations of this monograph are complemented not by heavy art-historical discourse but by specially commissioned short stories by Margaret Atwood, whose extensive and eloquent writings have often evoked similar themes and have been published in more than thirty languages. "Peter Doig: Works on Paper" features the artist's signature watercolours, and includes never-before-published stories by best-selling author Margaret Atwood.
