For his Counter Editions print Canoe - Island (2000), a familiar Doig motif reappears - the lone canoeist - here set adrift in a wide ocean under a psychotropic, sunset sky. In the sea behind stand the ruins of an abandoned prison. On his solitary journey, this bearded castaway's fate is as unknown as the lives of those men stranded on their tropical prison isle.
