Sarah Lucas, Self Portrait with Fried Eggs 1996, Tate Collection.
Photographic self-portraits have been an important element of Lucas's work since the early 1990s. Through them she presents an identity which challenges stereotypical representations of gender and sexuality. Posing simultaneously as tough and abject, macho but female, she creates an image of defiant femininity.
Food representing or standing in for sexual body parts is another common theme in Lucas's work, mainly employed to reveal and subvert degrading objectification of the body in vernacular language.
