PETER DAYTON

Peter Dayton emerged on the art scene in the early 1990s and is best known for his flower collages and witty surfboard paintings. He uses the language of Pop art to reference commodity culture, appropriating images and stripping them of their meaning. Commenting on their artifice and exploiting the way commercial images remove subjects from the realm of reality, Dayton’s flowers act as a vessel for his exploration of style. Dayton has been exhibited widely across the US with solo exhibitions at Salon 94, Glenn Horowitz, The Baldwin in Aspen and Devin Borden Hiram Butler in Houston. His work has been written up by The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Elle Decor and The New Yorker.
