On view at Gladstone’s uptown project space, “Honey Pie” features new work by Sarah Lucas. This group of bronze and “soft” sculptures represent a continuation of the British artist’s “Bunnies” series,” which she began in 1997.
Throughout the show, Lucas’s signature humanoid forms—a jumble of legs, arms, breasts, among other fleshy, limb-like shapes—wrap provocatively around chairs, with some pieces festooned with high-heeled shoes, lending them an even more overtly sexualized spirit. The gallery characterizes them as “plump and luscious figures both de Sadean and mod.”
Sarah Lucas, DICK 'EAD, 2018. Bronze, concrete and cast iron, 67 3/4 x 30 7/8 x 45 7/8 inches.
