Who’s that girl?


Untitled (2010) (c) Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman was in the news this weekend, with reviews of her current show in The GuardianThe Sunday Times, and elsewhere.

Says Simon Hattenstone in Saturdays Guardian,

I give Cindy Sherman the once-over. Then the twice- and thrice-over. I know I’m staring more than is right but I can’t help myself. I’m looking for clues. Sherman is one of the world’s leading artists – for 30 years, she has starred in all her photographs – and yet the more we see of her, the less recognisable she is.

She’s a Hitchcock heroine, a busty Monroe, an abuse victim, a terrified centrefold, a corpse, a Caravaggio, a Botticelli, a mutilated hermaphrodite sex doll, a man in a balaclava, a surgically-enhanced Hamptons type, a cowgirl, a desperate clown, and we’ve barely started.

If you happen to find yourself in London between now and Feb 19th, the Sprüth Magers gallery (7A Grafton Street, W1S 4EJ) would be well worth seeking out.
