*Artwork by Marilyn Minter


Painter and photographer Marilyn Minter’s work explores themes of erotic imagery, glamour, imperfection, and femininity. Her hypnotizing works blur the boundaries between genres and draw on the aesthetics of fashion, sex and advertising imagery to examine conceptions of glamour. Models are smeared with dirt, makeup and glitter or have in their mouths pearls, crystals and glittering jewels and take a critical look at the aesthetics of pornography often intentionally blurring images by using her hands to apply a top layer of paint. Minter’s works are included in the collections of the Guggenheim and MOMA in New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and MOCA, Los Angeles. Her photographs have been transformed into billboards and placed around New York’s Chelsea and her work has been exhibited at institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Dia Art Foundation. She was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial and has been the subject of numerous solo shows. Minter lives and works in New York City and proceeds from her sales will go to Planned Parenthood.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented the greatest risk to our health in the last 100 years. Isolated, frightened and forced to reinvent our lives amidst global trauma, we continue to fight and make adjustments for safer practices that will help us move towards healing. This is how Safe with Art came to light. We are working with some of the world’s most celebrated artists to create a rotating gallery of limited edition personal safety gear that is beautiful, sustainable and meaningful. With a portion proceeds supporting the charitable initiatives of each artists’ choice, Safe with Art acts as the conduit for the artists own voices to be heard and their vision seen walking through unprecedented historical moments. It is our hope that by incorporating art into the practices of staying safe we can find some beauty and inspiration, essential even in times of struggle. We hope to allow individual expression of style in the “new normal” and that together we can stay Safe with Art.
