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.
