In this print, a canoe is slowly drifting on the water as its reflection is mirrored back; warm, hazy air engulfs the boat in a suspended dream-state. Canoes frequently appear in the artist's work, serving as metaphors for memory that suggest both real and imagined remembrances. The palm trees along the horizon suggest a scene set in Trinidad.

Doig draws inspiration from childhood memories spent in Canada and time the artist has more recently spent living in Trinidad. For his works, Doig combines these personal memories with images sourced from photographs and films. The resulting compositions depict fantastical, timeless spaces that feel both personal and universal.
