A Young British Artist (YBA), Sarah Lucas has been satirizing British culture, sexuality, and gender stereotypes since the early 1990s. Often utilizing found objects, she makes confrontational, bawdy sculptures, installations, photographs, and mixed media works on paper, full of Freudian implications. Like Marcel Duchamp before her, she finds euphemistic potential in everyday items, explaining: “Things acquire, accrue a kind of powerfulness to them.” Food, furniture, pantyhose, and cigarettes are the most common objects she incorporates into her work, crafting them into abject, hyper-sexualized genitals and fragmented human bodies, alongside cast concrete and bronze sculptures. In Au Naturel (1994), an early work and a taste of what was to come, Lucas evokes a couple in bed through the choice placement of two melons and a pail next to a cucumber and two oranges on a worn mattress.
