Photographer Research - Sarah Lucas

Sarah Lucas

In an iconic series of twelve self-portrait photographs, the artist Sarah Lucas explored her own identity as a woman and as an artist over a number of years. Lucas’s androgynous appearance, masculine poses and use of visual puns challenge stereotypical representations of gender and sexuality, whilst revealing the vulnerability of the artist. Sarah Lucas studied at Goldsmiths College and was part of the Young British Artists movement in the 1990s.


I personally love Sarah's work and the way her work pushes the boundaries as well as showing her identity as a woman in a bold yet daring way.
