Cindy Sherman
Untitled Film Stills

Reading a review of the Cindy Sherman show at MoMA in Modern Painters, by Steven Henry Madoff.
And there was part of his review that I just kept reading over and over. 
he writes:
This is what Sherman does. She transforms herself in endless theatrical ways, repeating the act of origin of art-making: the magus's practice to renew matter by releasing a thing inside another thing, overcoming its source. The magic is in showing that source at the moment it shifts shape, affirming that within each thing in the world, there's something explosive unseen, which is made visible and mastered.

This is why I love art.
