"Gazing at these pen-and-ink drawings, you can't help but be reminded of a time long ago when a big part of you believed in the reality of the imaginary landscapes you generated in your own head or else were fed by books and movies and pictures like de Picciotto's. You're stuck in this timeless frenzy of childhood wonder and bewilderment, and yet there's a perversion here in some of these pictures to remind you that they are being driven by a grown-up hand. De Picciotto is an artist of the streets. She finds solace in what is base, cheap thrills, rock n' roll, and the pleasurable nightmares of childhood. What doesn't come from dreams, she invents, she spools together from an immense visual vocabulary of trash and trauma. All moments worth preserving, imagined as they are through the guise of a singular collapse into stupefaction and wonder - the vision of a true icon."
