Marilyn Minter

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, USA Lives and works in New York City, USA

Photographer, painter, and video artist Marilyn Minter made an impact in the late 80’s with an unflinching series of paintings based on still images from hardcore pornography. Her body of work explores human desire and pleasure, and has evolved into a powerful vision of glamour and sexuality, degradation and triumph, dirt and luminescence. Although Minter’s work doesn’t intend to scandalize, it casually traverses a mixed realm of abjection, excess, and the visceral as a central aesthetic.

Minter has a painterly sensibility and an anarchistic attitude, with a no-nonsense approach to often-delicate subject matters. Through extreme close-ups, her subjects are turned into detailed abstractions, refuting reality to suggest a different way of seeing. Minter juxtaposes photorealistic paintings with painterly photographs, honing in on the moment where clarity becomes abstraction and beauty meets the grotesque. From the 1990’s onwards, she developed a hyperrealist style of painting based on her own photographic templates in which the worlds of glamour and fashion are quoted in a feverishly obtrusive manner. She has shown her photographs as billboards, created wallpaper, aired a commercial on late night television, and shot fashion editorials in which she subverts cultural ideals of beauty and sexuality.
