About the Artwork

The canoe is one of Doig’s most recurring images. In this aquatint, the canoe is part of a vague scenery of shadowlike figures in a foggy but yet colourful environment.

"The figures almost disappear as you get closer. The paintings are very empty, in a way, but that’s the quality I like in my paintings and in other people’s paintings"

Peter Doig

There are only silhouettes of the figures against the colourful sunset skies, and numerous questions arise: Who is the shadowy figure in the centre of the boat, is it a sword that he is holding? Why is there a flag bearing the cross of the Order of the Temple? Doig's characteristic message of a borderline experience: never trust your eyes, there could always be a hidden dimension behind what you are seeing.
