Marilyn Minter Candy Shop

Marilyn Minter in her Soho studio, New York, 2009 shot by Johan Olander.

Marilyn Minter was born in 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana and currently lives in New York.  Driven by her fascination with the body, the artist filmed the 8 minute HD video Green Pink Caviar (2009), where fine and commercial art intertwine. Using macro lenses, she captures the sensuality of voluptuous lips playing with colored candy on a glass. Watch the trailer at
