About this title


Peter Doig paints without wanting to depict nature. Instead, his models from photography, film, books, and other media offer room for the viewer's ideas. Somehow, conspicuous citations of the individual and partly identifiable motifs produce an expressive force manifested in the final paintings. His recent work from Trinidad & Tobago is presented for the first time in this volume.

About the Author:

Peter Doig was born in 1959 in Edinburgh. He grew up in Trinidad, Canada, and London, and now lives and works in Trinidad. Venues for his solo shows have included the Whitechapel Gallery, Gavin Brown's Enterprise, the National Gallery of Canada and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami. He was short-listed for the 1994 Turner Prize, and his work has appeared in group shows at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Kunsthalle Wien and the Serpentine Gallery.
