The newest body of work by Cindy Sherman questions representation and identity in contemporary media

The American artist collages parts of her own face to construct the identities of various characters, using digital manipulation to accent the layered aspects and plasticity of the self.

Sherman has removed any scenic backdrops or mise-en-scène–the focus of this series is the face. She combines a digital collaging technique using black and white and color photographs with other traditional modes of transformation, such as make-up, wigs and costumes, to create a series of unsettling characters. To create the fractured characters, Sherman has photographed isolated parts of her face which she cuts, pastes and stretches onto a foundational image, ultimately constructing a new face.
