Sarah Lucas: Good Muse

Sarah Lucas has gained notoriety for creating sculptures and installations that showcase the innate crudeness of stereotypical conceptions of gender and sexuality. From the outset, Lucas has used self-portraiture to debunk conservative notions of femininity, adopting stances associated with male behavior that purposefully foster sexual ambiguity. Lucas’s penchant for androgyny has also filtered into her sculpture, with bodies that flaunt both male and female attitudes and attributes and deny any clear association with either.
