Yuko Shimizu on Marilyn Minter

Says New York-based illustrator Yuko Shimizu on the work of artist Marilyn Minter: ‘I was extremely lucky to be able to study fine arts with Marilyn Minter as my professor before she became too busy and stopped teaching the course. She was brutally honest about students work, which sometimes made me cry but made me grow like nobody else did. I owe her a lot’.

‘I love the fact she has not changed at all; she’s still down to earth, funny, and serious about good work, both her own and her students. Her photography and photo-realistic enamel paintings invariably borders that fine line between beauty and ugly. She says there are images that look good as photos, and images that don’t look great in photos but look great painted’.
