    The subject of her edition for “Texte zur Kunst” is Elias Bender Rønnefelt, lead singer of the Danish punk band Iceage. The closeness of the relation between the painter and the musician here translates into the making of the work: Peyton produced the print from life in the studio. It is again the characteristic intervention of form that shapes a moment of mutual artistic appreciation (Peyton first came across Rønnefelt when she heard his voice on the radio), and this moment of the live sitting in the studio, into a picture at once forceful and delicate. - Texte zur Kunst, Berlin
