    About The Work

    For the diptych Untitled (Doctor and Nurse), Sherman cheekily poses as both the male and the female in a homespun healthcare team; the male doctor is appropriately masculine, with a stern and serious face, while the nurse is portrayed as a friendlier figure, her mouth forming a half-smile. Photographed in black and white, and oval-shaped like an "old-time" photo album, the image looks as though it could be styled from an early postwar TV sitcom. It humorously emphasizes how strictly gender roles still adhere to antiquated notions of masculine dominance and feminine passivity.
