Born in Holloway in London in 1962, Sarah Lucas is one of the best known of the so-called 'YBAs' (Young British Artists) that came to prominence in the 1990s. Active in a variety of media including sculpture, photography and installation, her perennial themes of sex, death and gender are laced with a bleak humour that gives her work a distinctive and instantly recognisable voice. In the first monograph to be published on Lucas, Matthew Collings, who has become uniquely identified as a spokeman for the YBA generation, explores the issues relating to her art and ideas and the historical moment they inhabit. Witty and accessible as ever, Collings provides a thorough overview of the life and work of one of the most important artists working in Britain.
