2-TIMES  Art
Elizabeth Peyton,

With a refreshing 
directness, the works 
in “Practice” draw 
viewers into the 
hermetic space 
shared between 
the painter and 
the painted, halting 
time to capture 
glimpses of love, 
beauty, and poetry.

1965 – Connecticut,
United States. 

The exhibition: 
Is Peyton's first solo
in China, referencing
the idea of “practice
as both a regimen of
focused training and
an artist’s ongoing
process and body of
work; featuring
drawings, paintings,
and prints from
throughout her
thirty-year career,
with a particular
focus on work from
the past decade. 

“Practice” sees
Peyton working
and growing across
a range of media
including gauzy
pastels and watercolors,
oil paintings defined
by intense brooding
tones, and monotype
prints capturing bold,
direct forms.

2-TIMES' highlights:
· Eternal Return
(Tutankhamun), #1,
· Practice (Yuzuru
Hanyu), 2018.
