Cindy Sherman Untitled 2008 photograph via Metro Pictures.
Currently on display at Metro Pictures is Cindy Sherman’s first exhibition since 2004. Like practically all of Sherman’s work, the photos have the artist acting as her own model. The pieces are not traditional self-portraits however, as Sherman dons makeup, hairstyles, and wardrobe all conceived and executed by the artist herself. The exhibition which, is untitled, has Sherman dressing as affluent women in elaborate gowns and jewelry, set against backgrounds of lavish homes and gardens. To create the work the artist first photographed herself against a green screen and then then digitally merges the image with background photos shot separately.
