After two key exhibitions at Gladstone Brussels, both five years apart and marking beginning and ending of a creative outcome surveyed in the forthcoming monograph “Dark Incandescence”, American artist Elizabeth Peyton now presents a series of new paintings at the gallery’s New York counterpart.

Truthful to the modest scale, palette and sensitivity of her intimate (self-) portraits of artists, musicians, historical figures, and friends that brought her critical acclaim in the early 1990s, Peyton offers a new understanding of her broad personal interest and passion for both the historical and the contemporary through the inclusion of still lifes, photographs, video-stills and text fragments.
