Cindy Sherman, born 1954 in New Jersey, lives and works in New York. Hailed as one of the most important artists of her generation, Sherman explores the nature of representation, the manipulations of which are so fundamental to our image-based society, they escape detection. Similarly, the themes she undertakes in her photo-based works - from the identity issues of the early Untitled Film Stills to her more grotesque recent manifestations - are so ubiquitous in current art that they are taken for granted. With an almost uncanny sense of our culture´s concerns, Sherman is always one step ahead, providing a mirror of our fears, expectations, and obsessions.
