Sarah Lucas

at Gladstone,
515 W. 24th St.

It's amazing how many things can resemble genitalia when viewed in the right context, and since the early 1990s Sarah Lucas has explored this phenomenon with gusto. "NUD NOB" features a host of biomorphic abstractions, contorted figures, phallic fruits and straight-up sculptures of penises. Lucas has previously produced similar works in soft materials like stockings and cast-off clothing. Here, most of the sculptures are cast in bronze and polished to a mirrored finish. Whether seen as a display of ludicrously expensive juvenile humor or penetrating psychoanalytic imagery, "NUD NOB" delivers a Freudian bite.
