Cindy Sherman gets her Chanel on at the Metro Pictures Gallery
Cindy Sherman is making everyone else look lazy. You would think the acclaimed artist, who is her own photographer, model, and makeup artist, would be busy enough with her Retrospective at the MOMA. Instead Sherman has welcomed a second show of the year in New York at Metro Pictures, which in typical Sherman fashion, features herself, and even better: herself in Chanel haute couture.
Sherman is no stranger to the Metro Pictures walls--her work was featured in the gallery's opening exhibit in 1980. Her new larger than life scale works which are currently on display, show female characters (all Sherman) gazing out at the viewer create an eerily surreal scene. The manipulated backgrounds lend a painting like quality to the work. We feel like Coco would be proud.
Cindy Sherman's work will be on display at the Metro Picture Gallery until June 9. See some of the photographs below.
