Hoovering in darkest skies, clouds black
And heavy keeping from the ground,
Fall or dive and dippin' down,
In grayish cottonwound,

Keeping up to speed here lies,
Fluid drops, discoloured,
Due lack of light, a spot,
Allows me to barely bother,

And focus on my writing,
With a view nonetheless,
From my little cell,
Outside, more of the same darkness,

Darkish gray from the outer is,
Infiltrating in my blood,
Cold and loneliness I feel,
Wonder if we make the end or not,

A thin and squicky voice,
Bringing me back alive again,
'Got any rubbish,dear?',
A knod answers the woman.

Ook wel Tulpenhout, Magnolia, Tulpehout en Yellow Poplar genoemd.

Deze houtsoort wordt
Tulpen genoemd omdat aan de Tulpenboom hele mooie Tulpachtige bloemen komen en ook het boomblad heeft wel iets van een Tulp-vorm.

Geel-witte loofhoutsoort. Beetje zacht en zeer stabiel. In bredere planken komt soms een groene kern voor die door het licht tot bruin verkleurt. Het hout wordt ook wel Amerikaans Populieren genoemd maar heeft botanisch niets met Populieren te maken.

Tulpehout laat zich prima bewerken en mooi glad afwerken. Daarom wordt het regelmatig toegepast in traditionele keukenmeubels / kasten die dekkend geschilderd worden. Met name voor paneeldeurtjes is het zeer geschikt. Omdat het zo stabiel en maatvast is wordt het ook wel gebruikt voor biljarttafels.

Sterk verhaal:
Mijn opa had in zijn vooroorlogse kantoortje een meterkastje van Tulpen. Dat kastje had een deurtje van 30 cm breed dat (foutief) slechts aan één zijde geschilderd was.... normaalgesproken zou dat deurtje dus moeten scheuren en kromtrekken. Dat was niet het geval en opa gebruikte het deurtje om te demonstreren hoe stabiel Tulpen eigenlijk is.

Sarah Lucas

Sarah Lucas

(born 1962) is a British artist. She is part of the generation of Young British Artists who emerged during the 1990s. Her works frequently employ visual puns and bawdy humour, and include photography, collage and found objects.

Life and work

Sarah Lucas was born in Holloway, London, England. She studied art at The Working Men's College, London College of Printing and Goldsmith's College, graduating in 1987. She was included in the group exhibition Freeze the following year, along with contemporaries including Angus Fairhurst, Damien Hirst, and Gary Hume. She emerged as one of the major Young British Artists during the 1990s, with a body of highly provocative work. In the early 1990s she began using furniture as a substitute for the human body.

Her first two solo exhibitions in 1992 were titled The Whole Joke and Penis Nailed to a Board. For six months in 1993, Lucas and fellow artist Tracey Emin rented a retail space in east London, The Shop, where they made artworks, ranging from printed mugs to T-shirts with slogans, and put them on sale.

Through her career, Lucas has continued to appropriate everyday materials to make works that use humour, visual puns and sexual metaphor to discuss sex, death, Englishness and gender.

In works such as Bitch (table, t-shirt, melons, and vacuum-packed smoked fish, 1995), she merges tabloid culture with the economy of the ready-made. In earlier work, she had displayed enlarged pages from the Sunday Sport newspaper.

Sarah Lucas is also known for her self-portraits, such as Human Toilet Revisited, 1998, a colour photograph in which she sits on a toilet smoking a cigarette. In her solo exhibition The Fag Show at Sadie Coles in 2000, she used cigarettes as a material, as in Self-portrait with Cigarettes (2000).

In 1996 she was the subject of a BBC documentary, Two Melons and a Stinking Fish.

One-person museum exhibitions at Boymans-van Beuningen in Rotterdam, at Portikus in Frankfurt, and at The Ludwig Museum in Cologne and the recent survey exhibition at Kunsthalle Zurich, Kunstverein am Hamburg and Tate Liverpool have accompanied exhibitions in less conventional spaces—an empty office building for The Law in 1997, a disused postal depot in Berlin for the exhibition Beautiness in 1999, and an installation at the Freud Museum called Beyond the Pleasure Principle in 2000.

Lucas’s work has been included in major surveys of new British art in the last decade including Brilliant!—New Art From London at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis in 1995, Sensation (Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection at the Royal Academy in 1997), and Intelligence—New British Art, 2000, at Tate Britain. In 2003 Sarah Lucas participated in the 50th International Biennale of Art in Venice, Outlook: Contemporary Art in Athens, and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, a three person exhibition for Tate Britain with Angus Fairhurst and Damien Hirst in 2004. From October 2005 to January 2006, Tate Liverpool presented the first survey exhibition of Lucas's work.

Lucas lives in Suffolk and works in London, and is represented by Sadie Coles HQ, London, Barbara Gladstone, New York, and CFA Berlin.
