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.
