Catalogue Note

“Yeah, well, my theory is that you can make pictures of anything as long as you make them beautiful. You’ve just got to take out the narrative and let people hear you. I’m making images of things that might be disgusting even, like strings of spit, but I’m trying to make them gorgeous. It’s also sort of a way to be able to have a fiery red bush painting of mine in your living room” (Marilyn Minter in conversation with Hannah Ghorashi, Art News, 2 April 2016, online).
