Published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name. Known for his figurative paintings, Scottish artist Peter Doig here displays another side of his work. From the foreward: "These works explore many of the same themes and images but are not merely a preamble to the canvases. Vehicles for innovation that are full and finished entities in themselves, they have a presence which is entirely their own. Many maintain the tension between abstraction and representation that is characteristic of his painting, but the experimental nature of works on paper offers a freedom that painting does not."
