Peter Doig

Edited by Judith Nesbitt. Essay by Richard Shiff.

Peter Doig’s highly distinctive paintings have been exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide to international acclaim. Developed from film stills, footage of actual events or photographs of urban and rural environments, Doig’s paintings emanate a quiet nostalgia, triggering the lingering sense of a long forgotten memory. His work often deals with subjects at the fringes of normality, peripheral or marginal sites, unnamed places where the urban and natural worlds collide. Doig is known for his innovative exploration of the formal and thematic possibilities of landscape. In each work, he seeks to create an atmosphere that will draw the viewer into an intense and sometimes disorienting perceptual experience. His rigorous approach to surface, texture and color puts him among the most inventive painters of his generation--leaving a profound influence on young artists and contemporaries alike.
Published to accompany Doig’s major European traveling retrospective originating at Tate Britain, this extremely satisfying and lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive account of the artist’s practice over two decades of extraordinary achievement. It is the most thorough overview of his work to date. With an essay by art historian Richard Shiff, an introduction by Tate curator Judith Nesbitt and an illuminating conversation between Doig and his friend, the artist Chris Ofili, this is an enlightening survey of one of the most influential painters at work today.
Born in Edinburgh in 1959, Peter Doig was raised in Canada and spent two decades in London before moving to Trinidad, where he now lives and works. Doig graduated from St. Martins School of Art in 1983 and the Chelsea School of Art in 1990. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994, and was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial.
