Over the weekend, Regen Projects in Hollywood played host to a new show from the New York-based Marilyn Minter. Although known to a subset of her fans for her sexually-charged photographs exploring the pathology of glamour, Minter also expresses her artistic vision through paintings on occasion. On first glance, the large works appear to be taken through her camera, but on closer examination, the viewer is astonished to find that they are actually created with painted enamel on metal, with the last layers famously finished with fingertips. Although we focus on these pieces in our coverage, those interested can also check out a black and white series of shots from the 60s that feature her drug addicted mother in the side rooms of the showspace.
