Cindy Workman presents her current series about women with large inkjet prints. They are made of the images of women which are available via photographs, publications and online. You can see on the collages even idealized drawn girls from the envelopes of sewing patterns. Cindy Workman's figures have a mixed identity.

"What does it really mean to be a “mother” and how is that different from being a “wife” or “sister” or “daughter” or one cohesive “self” incorporating all of these fragmented identities? Because identity constantly changes and shifts depending on whom a person is interacting with and what role is being played, reality can never be fully realized in one instant and is constantly being reinvented."
