  • Catalogue Essay

    “Lucas has a certain look, not mannish but not feminine either. She makes a virtue out of this natural peculiarity, playing with it as something striking in itself, in photos that are otherwise often extremely minimal. They just show her in everyday clothes, standing there or sitting with a prop or two, or nothing. They have a no-style style, with no particular lighting, no gloss or high production values. Compared to her sculptures, which often have a disguised or subtle old-fashioned Modernist aesthetic appeal, they are more genuinely stark or held back. Her work is very rarely discussed without reference to these photos, as if they hold the key to her whole project. And it’s clear from interviews that she encourages this reading,” (M. Collings, Sarah Lucas, London, 2002).
