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.
