Tina 'L'Hotsky,' whom Village Voice columnist Michael Musto described as, " a good-time gal who was sort of the downtown Paris Hilton of that time," had her fifteen minutes, plus or minus, on the New York night life scene as 'Queen of the Mudd Club.' However, she was way smarter than Musto's description would indicate: she wrote articles for Harper's, wrote and acted in Kathyrn Bigelow's first feature, The Loveless, in 1982. An artist's book that features found photographs of nude women juxtaposed with odd stories, both of which seem culled from various pulp sources. ike Cindy Sherman at around the same time, explores the construction of female stereotypes. A fantastic cult classic--equal parts Punk and Pictures Generation!
