Cindy Sherman (English: Cindy Sherman, January 19, 1954 -), born in New Jersey, USA, is an American female photographer and performance artist. She is known for her conceptual art portraits.
Sherman used herself as the protagonist in a series of photography works, put on various makeup, and designed dramatic scenes and costumes to create scenes for the photos. Sometimes she deliberately disguised herself as a man in an attempt to subvert the established There are feminine or masculine impressions. Many feminist critics believe that she is an outstanding representative of contemporary female art. Every work of Sherman seems to sharply discuss the role of women in society, and it seems to be full of irony or sadness. But she has said she is not a feminist. Many art critics also rank her as one of the most important female photographers in modern art, and consider her one of the most influential artists of the late 20th century.
Sherman is good at using herself as the protagonist in a series of works, putting on star-like makeup, and designing dramatic scenes and costumes to compose pictures. Sometimes she even deliberately disguises herself as a man in an attempt to subvert the existing women or masculine impression. Her work often features oversaturated colors, unconscious expressions, heavy makeup and stage-like lighting.
Beginning in 1977, the Untitled Movie Stop Motion series marked the typical Cindy Sherman style—she directed and acted herself, just like stills, presenting different social identities of women: from models, stars, socialites to exquisite housewives. These are the recognition of the role of "female" by the mainstream values of society at that time.
From 1977 to 1980, Sherman's style is clearly seen in the famous series "Untitled Movie Stills", a total of 69 photos, in which Sherman played B-movie actresses or European art films Actresses, etc.; this famous exhibition was re-exhibited by the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1997, and the singer Madonna was a full sponsor. Even in the recent work in 2003, Sherman still maintains his consistent style, dressing himself as a buffoon and shooting dramatic photography.
After the "Untitled Film Stills" series, Sherman was invited by the American "Art Forum" magazine to make a series of "Center Center". The female images in this series are still self-portraited by her. Compared with the women in the "Untitled Film Stills" series, these female images are more awakened and touched by their own inner desires. Their eyes and body postures reveal a more explicit desire struggle than the women in the "Untitled Film Stills" series. They are empty and melancholy, longing to fall, and seem to be waiting for something or planning something in a mood of terror and anticipation. . It's a more restless, less confident, self-defeating, and almost bewildered image.
As far as photography is concerned, perhaps Sherman's most important contribution is that she negates people's myths about the "authenticity" of photography through her changeable photographic images, allowing photography, which has always been limited to real records, to appear in her own fiction Gained new growth space and possibilities. It is a fictional scene, but it is described in such a realistic way, which makes people discover another charm of photography.
