Marilyn Minter


The seductive paintings and photographs of Marilyn Minter border both photorealism and abstraction. Her work pieces together commercial depictions of femininity which juxtapose glamour and nausea. The enamel on metal paintings and large format c-prints include references from many major movements both artistically and socially, like early Surrealist photography, post-Warhol pop, advertising and pornography. Minter currently has a solo show at Salon 94 in New York. Her exhibitions include a solo exhibition at SF MOMA in 2005 (which was reviewed by SF Station), a large scale billboard installation in NYC. She was also featured this year in the 2006 Whitney Biennial.
