Catalogue Note

"Against the architectonic internal structure of Peyton's images, her figures lounge, lean, or sway. They are all on the diagonal. But it is not the directional diagonal of the revolutionary avant-gardes that points upwards to a utopian future. Rather these figures—their youth, their beauty, and the moment of time they inhabit—are about to fall. This sense of something fleeting and vulnerable is intensified by the delicacy of Peyton's drawing." Iwona Blazwick in: "Excessive Life," in: Exh. Cat., New York, New Museum, Elizabeth Peyton: Live Forever, 2008, p. 232
