Is Marilyn Minter's work even more relevant now than it was when she created it?


Here is an artist I've only just discovered.
Her work reminds me a bit of Cindy Sherman, because of its lurid erotica or (at times) confronting content. They also have in common that they are not trying to create beauty, but they are both questioning what beauty is.
If you put her name in your favorite search engine and just look at her images spread across the web, you will get a sense of what she's saying.
I find her work important and relevant at this time, when fashion is often a mash of mixed up fads, styles, and genres, and quite often ugly and contrary to our programmed wish for it to wisk us away into a world where everything is beautiful and perfect. When we cannot find beauty in the classical or traditional sense, we have to start questioning what it is that soothes us rather than what is provokes us into a reactive state.
Here is an artist whose mash-up shows integrity and cohesive enquiry.
More about her work is here: Marilyn Minter.
