Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chris Ofili's intricately constructed works, combining beadlike dots of paint, collaged images from popular media, and elephant dung, create a unique iconography that marries African artistic and ritual practices with Western art historical traditions and contemporary hip-hop culture. This beautifully designed book, made in close collaboration with the artist, is the first to examine Ofili's artistic development and surveys his work in watercolor, graphite drawing, and sculpture. Literary and historical parallels from a formidable list of contributors explore the ways through which the artist has grasped his times with a palpable sense of history."--Jacket
Morning, Paramin by Derek Walcott( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Morning, Paramin offers us a stunning collaboration between a Nobel Prize-winning poet, Derek Walcott, and a renowned figurative painter, Peter Doig. It journeys through the physical and psychological landscapes of two lives, from the snowy landscapes of Edmonton to the sun-washed shores of the Caribbean, from the process of mourning a loved one to the experience of watching a film. Taking the form of a call-and-response, with paintings on one side and poetry on the other, Morning, Paramin lets Walcott's characteristic perception and wit shine through in his illuminating responses to Doig's luminescent paintings. Both poems and paintings are triumphant celebrations of life's pleasures and pains--loving, observing, aging. Walcott, born and living in St. Lucia, and Doig, living in Trinidad, engage in a powerful dialogue on the Caribbean's colonial legacy, the politics of home and belonging, and the boundaries of art. A poignant exploration of a friendship and a vibrant meditation on the difficult beauty of the Caribbean, Morning, Paramin probes the boundaries of communication and celebrates the thrills of a shared language."--Dust jacket

Peter Doig : no foreign lands by Peter Doig( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Whether painting a mysterious bearded figure floating on a flat wash of blue or a winter landscape glimpsed through a thick web of branches, Peter Doig harnesses the materiality of his medium to create what he calls 'abstractions of memories', distilling recollected sensations into moments of pure sentience, like scenes in a series of mysterious narratives. In "Gasthof zur Muldentalsperre" (2000-2) two costumed figures stand guard at a low stone wall while behind them a reservoir reflects a twinkling starry sky. The young man bundled up against the cold in "Blotter" (1993) contemplates his reflection in a frozen pond, while in "Red Boat (Imaginary Boys)" (2004) six men in white shirts navigate upstream through a dense tropical landscape. Doig's work has been exhibited at the world's top museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and has been selected for contemporary art's most important international exhibitions, such as the SITE Santa Fe Biennial (2006), the Tate Triennial (2003 and 2006) and the Venice Biennale (2003). Although his work has had an enormous impact on contemporary painting, paving the way for a whole generation of idiosyncratic figurative painters, his painted worlds are without parallel. Raised in Canada, based in London for two decades and now living in Trinidad, Doig has tallied a wide range of references, not only geographic (from French modernist architecture to the ski slopes of Quebec) but also artistic (from Ernst Kirchner to Philip Guston) and musical (from punk to calypso). Sometimes these references lurk in plain sight--"Figure in Mountain Landscape" (1997-98) is based on a photograph of Group of Seven painter Franklin Carmichael--but most often they lie deep below the churning surface of the canvas. In the Interview, Kitty Scott asks the artist about his shifting sense of place and the way it continues to shape his work. In the Survey, Adrian Searle considers how the paradoxical union of highly charged technique and muted subject matter lend the artist's paintings their unique 'emotional weather'. Catherine Grenier's Focus centers on the painting 100 Years Ago, examining its movement along axes of time and place, both historical adn imaginary. In the Artist's Choice, Hannes Schneider & Arnold Fanck's text on skiing recalls the artist's longtime fascination with the sport while evoking the grace and physicality of his painting. Artist's Writings include a 2001 interview featuring questions from a range of artists, curators and critics; an appreciation of the work of Pierre Bonnard; and the artist's ten favorite 'house painters'

Peter Doig by Peter Doig( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in Danish and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue focuses on the artists graphic production from the period after 1982 with works from the UBS Art Collection. Freuds (19222011) portraitsoften of the same subjects he painted-manage to encompass his own psyche, the models responses and our own reactions. "My work," he said, "is purely autobiographical. It is about myself and my surroundings." In an etching, the subject is scored into a metal plate covered with a wax mixture, which, after immersion in an acid bath, exposes the scorings, which are left as black lines in the finished print. Readers get even closer access to this involved and nontraditional printmaking process, as the volume is supplemented with ten stages of a print from a private collection in England

Peter Doig by Peter Doig( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive monograph on Turner Prize-nominated artist Peter Doig. In every generation of artists, there are a few-or perhaps just one-who propose a new set of questions and alter the way we understand art. Peter Doig is such an artist. While stories of painting's demise in the early 1990s deemed painters and their work quaintly anachronistic, Doig-looking ahead as much as back for inspiration-forged a new painterly language: an ironic mix of Romanticism and post-impressionism to create haunting and sometimes dreamlike landscape vistas. In this lavish new volume devoted to his entire career-which includes paintings, drawings, and reference material, such as found photographs-art historians Richard Shiff and Catherine Lampert mine the artist's rich and varied work. Doig's landscapes have been inspired by the many places the artist has lived-England, Canada, Trinidad. So, too, does memory, or the idea of memory, inform much of his production. This handsome slipcased volume is designed in close collaboration with the artist, with Doig specially creating the cover and various elements of the interior. Every facet of the painter's singular vision is explored, from his earliest paintings of the early 1990s to the most recent series of works. Published in association with Michael Werner Gallery.-- Product Description

Geliebte Feinde - Symbolismus heute : von Peter Doig bis Thomas Schütte( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit der Ausstellung 'Symbolismus heute' möchte sich das Museum dem Thema des Symbolismus widmen, der gemeinhin als abgeschlossen gilt und mit Künstlern des 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts in Verbindung gebracht wird. Die Präsentation soll den Symbolismus jedoch nicht als eine in sich abgeschlossene Epoche präsentieren, sondern vielmehr als eine Geisteshaltung, die bis heute virulent und durchaus aktuell ist: Das Konzept basiert auf der Auffassung, dass das Gedankengut und die revolutionären Innovationen des Symbolismus nicht nur die Bildende Kunst bis ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein stark beeinflusst und entscheidend geprägt haben, sondern bis heute nachwirken. So soll der Symbolismus nicht als Epochen- oder Stilbegriff betrachtet werden, sondern als eine künstlerische Haltung und ästhetische Qualität, die sich im Schaffen zahlreicher aktueller Künstler im In- und Ausland finden lässt. Exhibition: Clemens-Sels-Museum, Neuss, Germany (23.10.2016-19.02.2017)
