Lipstick, high heels, sweat, glitter and diamonds are Marilyn Minter’s subjects of choice. With enthusiasm and humor, this acclaimed artist dives straight into the dark and gritty underside of glamour. She is equally adept at photography and photorealistic painting, creating large-scale, erotically charged compositions that bring into sharp focus the power of desire.
Minter lives and works in New York City and is considered one of the most important contemporary artists working today. She has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, among them the Whitney Biennial, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain. Her work has appeared in exhibitions throughout the world and on digital billboards on Sunset Boulevard and Times Square.
