“I read the Melody Maker like Marcel Proust,” says Elizabeth Peyton (b. 1965 in Danbury, CT, USA; lives and works in New York and Berlin). She first attracted attention in the mid-1990s with stylized and idealized portraits of her friends, pop stars, and members of European royal houses. These characters, androgynous figures rife with sexual ambivalence, appear in small-format pictures executed in various techniques: oil on canvas, watercolor or pencil drawing on paper, etching.
