Cindy Sherman @ Spruth Magers

5 June 2018 - 1 September 2018

Cindy Sherman’s thirty-five year career in photography has established her as one of the most influential figures in contemporary art.  She creates photographic portraits that are predicated on themes of identity, gender and role-play. Parodying the representation of women in film and television, fashion magazines, advertising, and online, Sherman adopts limitless guises that illuminate the performative nature of subjectivity and sexuality. Each photograph is created through dye sublimation – using heat to transfer dye directly onto metal. The technique removes the necessity for glass protection to the works, making the life-size figures seem more immediate, more vital – emerging from their outmoded stage sets to encroach on our own contemporary world.
