I have only recently realized the wonderous Marilyn Minter. Born in 1948, Minter has since been making painting and photographs of close-up glamour, fashion and sex sex SEX. There is an grotesque beauty that belies each work, whether it be a dripping wet pout or an eye covered in pounds of glitter. The ever-miniscule details are depicted and sensualized, making each piece of art voyeuristic, abstract. Even the filthy feet photos have a fetishized quality to them. Marilyn Minter is totally the new Andy Warhol for me.
