SPEED POWER TIME HEART: New paintings by Elizabeth Peyton



November 4 – December 21, 2016

New paintings by Elizabeth Peyton

Gladstone Gallery
130 East 64th Street
New York, New York

Gladstone 64 is pleased to present SPEED   POWER   TIME   HEART, an exhibition of new paintings by Elizabeth Peyton. This show will be Peyton’s first exhibition with Gladstone Gallery in New York.

“Dark Incandescence,” Peyton’s 2014 exhibition at Gladstone Gallery, Brussels, marked the latter part of a five-year creative interval surveyed in a monograph of the same title forthcoming from Rizzoli. Together with Peyton’s first Gladstone Brussels exhibition in 2009, these two shows serve as bookends to the period chronicled in the publication. “Dark Incandescence” refers to Gustave Flaubert’s writings from Flaubert in Egypt. Kirsty Bell, whose essay is included in the book, observes that Flaubert renders the most ordinary details of bourgeois life extraordinary through his powers of perception and description, which has had a deep impact on Peyton.

Concurrently, Peyton’s exhibition, “Tristan und Isolde,” is on view at the Gallery Met at the Metropolitan Opera through November 26th. Bell writes: “Her work is charged with a vital sense of proximity, regardless of whether the subject is a living face, a photograph, a vase of flowers or the dramatic denouement of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. It is all about the present moment. Seen together, however, her work offers a complex meditation on the nature of time and creative potential.”


Elizabeth Peyton was born in 1965 and currently lives and works in New York. Her work has been exhibited extensively in international galleries and museums, and is in leading public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Tate Modern, London; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. An acclaimed mid-career retrospective, “Live Forever,” was organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, in 2008; the exhibition later traveled to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitechapel Gallery, London; and Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht. Recent solo exhibitions include: Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden; Gallery Met, New York; and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. In 2017, solo exhibitions will be held at Hara Museum, Tokyo, and Académie de France in Rome – Villa Medici.
