texture

While seemingly simple, Marilyn Minter’s early painterly works, defined by color and texture, engage a nuanced set of artistic problems that still inspire Minter today. They are the first instances of her career-long relationship with photorealism, and reveal her interest in the visual play between photography and painting. The littered linoleum floors suggest domestic spaces—the site of traditional women’s work. Minter’s meticulous representation asks the viewer to consider this underrecognized labor and its everyday details.
