c-print, 1990

The early pictures of Cindy Sherman remind us of film scenes, but her body of work quickly evolved and became prone to criticize society. Her paintings mirrored the anthropological questions about the social decline. Dolls with disproportionately enlarged labia explained the dominance of a man’s world. Babydoll with Mask is an example of Sherman’s photographs of visible terror. The terrifying pictures are inspired by horror movies and by the cruelties of our time.
