    Marilyn Minter appropriates the visual language of fashion, advertisements, and pornography, transforming them into hyper-realistic paintings that subvert their methods. She has explained: “I’m always looking for the paradox. The idea of glamour is so shallow, so debased, and yet it gives people so much pleasure and is a huge industry. I have a love/hate relationship with it.” Minter began her career as a photographer, then moved to painting. The present enamel on metal work is from an early series of paintings that she titled Food Porn. These visually stunning works have a visceral, even erotic appeal and a lushly fluid, gelatinous surface, bringing to the fore considerations of how images manipulate desire.
