Untitled, 1985 - Cindy Sherman
About the Work

About Cindy Sherman
A remarkable performer, Sherman reconfigures her face and body for the camera — either through subtle distortions or grotesque prosthetics — to render herself all but unrecognizable to the audience. Each image is overloaded with detail, every nuance caught by the artist's eye. While Sherman is usually disguised in her pictures, she leaves details slightly askew so that the constructed scene, and its related artifice, is revealed.
Since the early 1980s, most of Sherman's work has been of larger scale and in color, but her principal concern—to confront how media influences our perception of identity— has remained constant. All of the photographs are untitled and Sherman's characters (with the exception of several sequential shots in the Untitled Film Still series) have never appeared twice, leaving the viewer to consider the works without any narrative help from the artist.Read Less
