Prism by Marilyn Minter depicts a pair of red feminine lips with a jewel necklace in them. The face with the lips is covered in glitter. Essentially, the painting is very glamorous in nature. Seeing it in person, I was able to see the vivid attraction much closer. I was able to see the detail of the mouth and the detail surrounding it. The medium is chromogenic print which means the art features a combination of colors and pigments that vary in color. This medium allows the art to be evocative while still communicating its message. The message communicated to me the amount f femininity involved in glamour. The painting showed me how easy it is to be comfortable with allure and fashion. Particularly as a woman, this makes me feel like I should embrace my exoticism combined with my femininity.
