In her magnification of the sexual overtones inherent to commercial photography, Marilyn Minter amplifies its basest tendencies, creating luscious images of lips, heels, tongues, and teeth that drip with perspiration and saliva. In 'Prism' she plays on the oral fixation dominating commercial imagery, highlighting the overt sex appeal of glitter, jewels and gloss.
