    ...Picasso's working premise that a portrait is a subjective document: a viewer recognizes the artist first, the sitter second (if at all). The same is true of Peyton, whose 'pictures of people' have always been highly subjective. Peyton's work carries her own signature, with its bold, largescale brushstrokes on small surfaces. It also contains her vision of something I am tempted to describe as the bite of time. (Calvin Tompkins, The Artist of the Portrait, The New Yorker, October 6, 2008, p.47)
    "I just think that if you look it's there. It's all right there, everything you need to know should be present in what you're looking at. Art work expresses what it's like to be human, and one of the things about being human is time passing."
    -Elizabeth Peyton, 2008
