For the past twenty-odd years, artist Elizabeth Peyton has built an enviable oeuvre melding portraiture and pop culture. It’s a world in which Prince William, Jackie Kennedy and Marc Jacobs rub elbows with a Who’s Who of rock legends. Her new book Here She Comes Now
zeroes in on the latter, with photographs of Kurt Cobain, David Bowie, Jarvis Cocker and Keith Richards — all captured in the midst of a live performance — next to Peyton’s painterly interpretations. The book truly captivates in tracking her fascination with these personalities, from electrifying inspiration to powerfully intimate final works.
