Cindy Sherman has long been a master at turning simple childhood games of dress-up and role play into her own distinctive, wittily subversive brand of fine art. The New York photographer serves as both her own muse and model in the aptly titled, career-spanning retrospective, “Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life,” her first major museum exhibition locally in nearly two decades. From her early series of photos that alternate between portraits of the artist as a vapid Hollywood starlet and a mundanely sensual housewife to her more recent formalized parodies of classical European paintings, Sherman remains a curiously deadpan, chameleonic presence as she slyly satirizes fashion, the media, film and modern art.
