Marilyn Minter- Gossip Girl Art

In Gossip Girl Art, Season 2, Season 4 on August 7, 2011 at 12:00 am

Marilyn Minter- “Stepping Up”  Enamel on metal, 96 x 60 in.

Marilyn Minter (Born: 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana but raised in Florida. Currently lives and works in New York).

Minter helds a master of fine art degree from Syracuse University. She  now teaches in fine art at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

While she was student, Marilyn Minter created a series of photographic studies with her drug -addicted  mother among the objects. Later she started to incorporate the sexuality from the Pop-derived pictures, and imagery from the porn industry. Her works  often include sexuality, erotic imagery, and a touch of “urban glam”.  Minter uses the good old darkroom in the process, and is not a fan of digital manipulation.

Marlin Minter is one of the greatest and most important living temporary artist, and is widely known among collectors and institutions.

On the wall to the left: Marilyn Minter’s “Stepping Up”. In the background: Ryan McGinley, season 2, ep. 11.

  1. i want to know how much is the paint of the shoes and the one of the eye

  2. Stepping up is shown again in Season 5, Episode 4, about 9 minutes in. An avid fan of both Gossip Girl and Marilyn Minter, I’m surprised it took me this long to spot her work.

  3. Does anyone know where I can find som emore info about the painting in the background labeled: “In the background: Ryan McGinley, season 2, ep. 11.”?

    Best regards,

  4. The picture of the three faces in Lily’s apartment shown behind Eric (2 pictures above- episode18, season 4) and also in the episode where Rufus try’s to propose to Lily and has all of her favorite things (season 2, episode 23, I think). Who is the artist and where can I possibly find a print? I’m sure the original is far too expensive for me. Thank you for your time.

  5. not shure, will try to check out;)
