The female body and its capacity for glamor and adornment are central subjects in Marilyn Minter’s oeuvre. Here a detailed close-up of a woman’s closed eye takes up the frame. Bedecked with eyeshadow and glitter, the shimmering, slick textures of makeup and skin exude a tactile artificiality.

About Marilyn Minter

Marilyn Minter (American, b. 1948) constructs visceral and gaudy paintings, photographs, and video works that examine the relationship between the body, cultural anxieties about sexuality and desire, and fashion imagery. Minter is best known for glossy, hyperrealistic paintings in enamel on metal that depict closeups of heavily made up lips, eyes, and feet.
