By Marilyn Minter.
Snoeck, Germany, 2011. 48 pp., 7 black & white and 32 color illustrations, 9¼x11¾".
A brief exhibition catalog for the controversial Marilyn Minter, who, since her retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Art in 2005, is considered a major protagonist in the American art scene. Represented in key collections such as MoMA, LA MOCA and the Whitney, Minter has attracted wide attention with work such as her virtuoso spectacles of erotically charged sensuality: in her paintings, photographs and video works, high heels, pearls, sweat, and skin are rendered in larger-than-life compositions. The catalog encompasses nearly 40 works, beginning with Minter’s early photographs which portray her drug-addicted mother, and including the video “100 Food Porn Commercials,” and the Food Porn paintings. Other works were created after 2000, right up to the large-format works Glisterine and Chesire from 2011.
