Marilyn Minter's Mom Doing Nothing Out of the Ordinary
Mom Smoking, 1969
"I was about twenty and in art school at the time—a junior photography student. I went home for the weekend, and I just photographed my mother not really thinking anything was out of the ordinary. Not for a second did I think the pictures were startling."

Wes Lang's (born 1972) works on paper are complicated arrangements of American iconography, expertly rendered in ink and paint in a dizzying mix of American history, biker culture, tattoo iconography, ornament, Native American art, pin-ups, newspaper headlines and Taoist texts.
