Marilyn Minter

Resist Flag, 2017 by Marilyn Minter

Legendary feminist artist Marilyn Minter is best known for pieces that have been described as both shiny and grotesque, glittering and filthy. Drawing on techniques familiar of Pop art, Photorealism, and commercial graphics, her images instantly captivate. Similar to her latest works, the arresting RESIST FLAG was created by layering photographs against glass, which was then subjected to frost or mist, adding an extra veil to both image and process. The result surprises, confuses, and awes.


Marilyn Minter’s RESIST FLAG was on view June 14th – July 4th, 2017 at:
Creative Time Headquarters, 59 East 4th Street, NY, NY
