DESCRIPTION

In this iconic series of twelve self-portrait photographs, the artist Sarah Lucas explores 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.  Lucas studied at Goldsmiths College and was part of the Young British Artists movement in the 1990s.
