This full-color monograph showcases Doig's first show in a public gallery dedicated solely to his paper works of the past 14 years. An artist who credits such inspirations as Hopper, Munch and Matisse, Doig re-works and re-interprets images drawn from photographs, film stills, postcards, paintings and even album covers to explore notions of memory and fantasy. Doig's haunting and atmospheric work is often compared to the early 20th-century paintings of the Symbolists and Surrealists and is seen as having revived the Romantic spirit. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and has been featured in the 54th International Carnegie Exhibition as well as many leading museums including the MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate, and the Dallas Museum of Art. Exhibition Dates: Dallas Museum of Art beginning September 13, 2005 The Gallery of Windsor beginning December 4, 2005 Art Gallery of Ontario beginning March 8, 2006.

About the Author:

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than 25 volumes of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction including The Edible Woman, The Handmaid's Tale, The Robber Bride, and The Blind Assassin that won the prestigious Booker Prize in 2000.

From Publishers Weekly:

Though her introduction is brief and inconsequential, Margaret Atwood's presence at the beginning of this beautifully produced volume underscores that, though Doig was born and educated in the U.K., and though he spent part of his life in Trinidad, his work derives exclusively—almost obsessively—from his years in Canada. The Canada that seeped into Doig's bones is not the land of Shania and Gretsky; it's the silent, interior "North" of Glenn Gould and Michael Snow, the home of the austere, Nordic modernism of the "Group of Seven" painters, the sepulchral rainforests of Emily Carr, the Freudian tundra of David Milne, and of Atwood's own chilly dystopias. Executed with equal adeptness in watercolor, pastel and oil, his formally inventive recastings of a limited number of motifs—wintry landscapes, cabins, hooded figures facing away, people in canoes—also recall that other northern master, Edvard Munch. Doig's source images are photographs, often archival, and his images exist in a dreamlike, haunted space where psychology, landscape and history intermingle uncomfortably. Not unlike Canada, in fact.
