Catalogue Note

"Peyton was transfixed by these f*#^ed-up, androgynous, needs-a-mom boys, whether the clan of the junkie damned (Sid Vicious, Kurt Cobain, and Elvis Presley), or the young princelings and faunlets of rock (Beck, Liam Gallagher, and Jarvis Cocker). But she painted them with a fluid, sexy touch that negated issues of illustration or kitsch, and helped melt the ice that had formed around painting in the early 1990s." - Jerry Saltz ("Red Lipped Royals", artnet magazine, 4/16/99)
