Overview

"Peter Doig's highly distinctive paintings have been exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide to international acclaim. In each work, Doig seeks to create an atmosphere that will draw the viewer into an intense and beguiling perceptual experience. Derived from photographic sources or quasi-memories, to form grand and magical tableaux, his pictorial world has also been shaped by the different places he has lived in. Born in Scotland, he was raised in Canada and spent two decades in London, before moving to Trinidad, where he now lives and works." Accompanying a major retrospective exhibition, this lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive account of Doig's practice over two decades of extraordinary achievement. With an essay by Richard Shiff, an introduction by Tate curator Judith Nesbitt and an illuminating conversation between Doig and his friend, the artist Chris Ofili, this is a thorough and up-to-date survey of one of the most influential painters at work today.
