Peter Doig: No Foreign Lands
Text by Hilton Als, Stéphane Aquin, Keith Hartley. Interview by Angus Cook.
Peter Doig is well known for the exotic atmospheres and dreamy narratives that appear in his work. With an uncommonly rich color palette and a unique material sensibility, he has created some of the most resonant and evocative images in contemporary painting, placing him among the most inventive painters working today. But, as this extensive volume makes clear, he is also a sophisticated visual thinker, endlessly preoccupied with the process and history of painting. No Foreign Lands is the first publication to examine in depth the conceptual underpinnings of Doig’s oeuvre. Particular attention is given to the importance of motifs, themes and variations in his work, explored in over 200 paintings and works on paper from the past 13 years, among them new works never before published.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. Martin’s 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. In February 2013, his painting "The Architect’s Home in the Ravine" sold for $12,000,000 at a London auction. The exhibition No Foreign Lands, which opened at the Scottish National Gallery before traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, showcases works created during the past ten years, much of which the artist spent in Trinidad. The Independent called the exhibition "a thrilling show," and The Observer praised it as "mesmerizing."
"Lapeyrouse Wall" (2004) is reproduced from Peter Doig: No Foreign Land.

Peter Doig's 100 Years Ago (2002) is reproduced from the new monograph, No Foreign Land—one of our top Holiday Gift Books of 2013 and a featured title in our Holiday Bookshop at the agnès b. Galerie Boutique opening this weekend in Soho. Of the painting, essayist Keith Hartley writes, "100 Years Ago is a sort of manifesto painting in which Doig sets out to explore, as he sees it, the still vital legacy and issues of modernist painting... The canoe, floating on the water, is one of Doig's iconic images. He first used it back in 1998 in the painting Friday 13th, when he based the motif on a scene from Sean Cunningham’s low-budget 1980 horror film… This work and the 'canoe paintings' that Doig made in the 1990s have a psychological intensity and brooding atmosphere that perhaps owe as much to the paintings of Edvard Munch as to the film Friday the 13th." continue to blog
