Although Peter Doig has had many publications dedicated to his oeuvre, this one focuses solely on his works on paper, examining the artist's themes of the past 12 years. Doig's signature atmospheric works have helped to revive the popularity of figurative painting, a genre lately overshadowed by photography and video art. Inspired by many pictorial models from painting to film to photography, Doig distills images to create works that possess an ephemeral, timeless quality, while he visits notions of recollection and fantasy. With approximately 100 images, many of them reproduced here for the first time, this book provides a comprehensive view of the celebrated artist's work to date. Instead of an art historical text, Doig's images are accompanied by a suite of short stories written by Margaret Atwood exclusively for this publication.
