Artist of the Day- Cindy Sherman (click on image to see more)

Sherman is a photographer. She photographs herself in different costumes and makeup and wigs to produce an image that is often arresting for its drama. She says she’s not doing self portraits…that she’s just using herself as a canvas. And indeed she is chameleon like. She’s pretty but also ordinary in a way that makes her perfect to embellish! She often describes herself as ‘acting’ for the photographs.
