Konig, 2005. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #83284
This full-color monograph showcases Doig's first show in a public gallery dedicated solely to his paper works of the past 14 years. An artist who credits such inspirations as Hopper, Munch and Matisse, Doig re-works and re-interprets images drawn from photographs, film stills, postcards, paintings and even album covers to explore notions of memory and fantasy. Doig's haunting and atmospheric work is often compared to the early 20th-century paintings of the Symbolists and Surrealists and is seen as having revived the Romantic spirit. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and has been featured in the 54th International Carnegie Exhibition as well as many leading museums including the MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate, and the Dallas Museum of Art. Exhibition Dates: Dallas Museum of Art beginning September 13, 2005 The Gallery of Windsor beginning December 4, 2005 Art Gallery of Ontario beginning March 8, 2006.
