Island Fever


Peter Doig, Art Issue,

An artist who won acclaim by painting not from life but his memory of it, Peter Doig moved from London to Trinidad in 2002. There, the lush view outside his door became too hard to resist, and life began to seep into his canvas as it passed directly in front of his eyes. On the eve of Doig’s show of new work at Michael Werner gallery, in New York, we take a look back at W’s Art Issue from 2008, when Joel Sternfeld photographed the painter in the Caribbean paradise that claimed his art.
