Lot Details

Often featuring uncomfortably close-up images of androgynous bodies covered in glitter, beads, paint, or pearls, Marilyn Minter’s richly-colored photographs never fail to prompt her viewers to question what truly constitutes beauty and glamour. "Bubble Gum" is no exception to Minter's oeuvre, examining the multifaceted nature of high fashion and revealing it as simultaneously beautiful and grotesque.
