Peter Doig

Edited by Ulf Küster. Text by Ulf Küster, Richard Shiff.

"Man Dressed as Bat (Night)" (2008) is reproduced from <I>Peter Doig</I>.The works of the painter Peter Doig, who divides his time between Trinidad, London and New York, are densely atmospheric and sometimes uncanny. They are often based on found or private visual material, which the artist pieces together in dreamlike compositions suffused with melancholy and angst. Employing an unusual color palette and possessing an immense sensitivity for his medium, Doig follows in the footsteps of masters such as Paul Gauguin, Pierre Bonnard and Henri Matisse. This publication presents Doig as an artist with a conceptual practice, a visual thinker who is not only fascinated by the history of painting but also the process of painting itself. The large-format paintings and works on paper reproduced in this volume, selected from Doig's entire career, allow the viewer to share his creative passion and his enthusiasm for the power of painting.
Born in Edinburgh in 1959, Peter Doig was raised in Canada and spent two decades in London before moving to Trinidad. Doig graduated from St. Martin's School of Art in 1983 and the Chelsea School of Art in 1990. Hovering between abstraction and figuration and rendered in a rich, sometimes anti-naturalistic color palette, Doig's sumptuous paintings are loved by both critics and collectors alike. Doig was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and his work was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial. The artist made headlines in February 2013 when his painting "The Architect's Home in the Ravine" sold for $12,000,000 at a London auction, breaking his previous record.

"Milky Way" (1989-90) is reproduced from Peter Doig, the catalogue to the artist's recent exhibition at Fondation Beyeler in Basel, published by Hatje Cantz. In conversation with Ulf Küster, Doig refers to the painting: "…"Milky Way"—it's such a ridiculous idea. You know, it may sound like I was being strategic but I think if you're going to do things like that you have to create a kind of fine balance between absurdity and seriousness. I see a lot of people's work and I think, that's a very impressive painting, painted interestingly… it's a good idea—but then there will be something about the figurative element that is lame and it becomes just a joke, and I just lose any interest I initially had in it… There has to be that element of… reality, I suppose." continue to blog
