Cindy Sharman - who is she really?
A fascinating exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, Sherman's work is brilliantly executed and really challenging on how the female image is manipulated by the media, mostly for commercial gain. The exhibition, which closes on 15th Sept explores the development of her work from the mid-1970s to the present day and features around 150 works.
The Gallery says; "focusing on the artist’s manipulation of her own appearance and her deployment of material derived from a range of cultural sources, including film, advertising and fashion, the show explores the tension between façade and identity."
