“Crème de la Crème” is the first of Peyton’s political/social art series, “Demons of Amerikkka”. In this piece, Peyton calls out the upper class of America who have made their livings and built their generational wealth off the backs of the neglected lower-class citizens. Peyton’s modern approach to creating an image that puts the wealthy and elite on the spot while giving the under-appreciated a voice was inspired by her research of slavery in America, and the French aristocracy’s continuous mistreatment of the working class during the reign of King Louis XVI that led to the historical French Revolution in 1789.
