Sarah Lucas first gained attention in the early 1990s as one of the now-famous Young British Artists (YBAs). She is known for a bold use of iconic images derived from popular culture and our fantasies: genitals and cropped body parts, food and cigarettes, and the uncanny aspects of so-called everyday life. Lucas studied in London at the Working Men’s College, London College of Printing (now London College of Communication), and Goldsmiths College. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2013) and the Henry Moore Institute (Leeds, 2012), and she has participated in group shows at the New Museum (New York, 2013), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2012), and Tate Britain (London, 2004).
