"While Sherman is still photographing herself in a range of various guises, she has decidedly broken free of the frames that constrict her former work and has blown up photographs of an eclectic cast of characters to create a larger than life sized tableaux that extends throughout the two spaces of the gallery." - Michelle Schultz on www.dailyserving.com
|Cindy Sherman, Untitled, 2010.|
Cindy Sherman is an excellent example of stepping out of the box. This photograph is taken at her solo exhibition at Sprueth Magers. "The murals plaster the rooms like wallpaper, an effect furthered by the illustrative black and white backdrop, reminiscent of a Victorian woodlands as interpreted through home decor." (Michelle Schultz). Sherman's work hasn't got any boundaries, being surrounded by such massive images you almost feel immersed and engrossed into Shermans world. Although this doesn't follow the traditional concept of the 'white cube' it does still play upon a similar idea - the massive, graffiti-like, photos are on a white wall and therefore do stand out. Sherman has reached beyond the typical and created something new. " As one of the most successful artists of the past decades there is an immense amount of pressure to continually produce something new. " (Michelle Schultz).
