So much has happened already this year .... our lace sleeves have appeared in Lucy's Magazine twice, on the front cover no less ! Not to mention our Multi Ring Collar... Beautiful shot.. those lips are sending me into a spin.
I've recently discovered the amazing work of Marilyn Minter and boy it's all about the lips. On first glance I believed her recent paintings to be photos, until closer inspection revealing softness, beauty and textural subtleties of an incredibly skilled artist. Her photography is equally enticing ... Provocative and sensual I presumed this to be the work of a young artist treading a similar line to the likes of Ivan Alifan. But no, this truly inspiring woman is turning 70 next year, working since her twenties she's been producing paintings, photography and video as current and fresh today as any work I've seen .... and it just keeps getting better.
I celebrate experience and longevity, reinvention and dedication to the creative self ...I'm excited by this artist more than most as she cements my views that your own creativity is a beast that needs to be fed, inspiration comes from doing and will grow and evolve over the years if only you are brave enough to dedicate yourself to it ...
Her creative journey continues full steam ahead and she's sure to capitalise with a moist impression of nakedness pressed against a shower door.
