    I would love it if there was so description to the meanings behind the artworks.
    and why emin would write about this.

      i just discovered her work recently and it is very engaging to me. i intentionally choose to avoid descriptions and text on BOX and line so that it can stay a fast and fluid voice of visual inspiration. i try to attach artists websites so you can dive deeper into their work from that point on. i understand that may not be the answers you were searching for, but i hope its a start.

    Perfect answer. I love her work, her boldness and blunt artwork is inspiring to me. Wish we were all this brave to speak our minds.

    My 7 year old could paint like that, if I let her.

      its not that she can paint like a 7yr old, its the idea behind it. She made it that way for a reason.

    IT IS IN FACT VERY STUPID EVEN TO CALL THESE THINGS ART… LET ALONE TO LOVE IT. DISAPPOINTING.

      I’m really glad that everyone finds her work interesting enough to post on. Tracey was named by Harper’s Bazaar UK as one of their Woman of the Year in 2011. Take some time, read some articles on her, read some interviews… I think anyone who is closed minded to this should take a deep breath, do some research and really take a moment to question “what is art”.

    Well. Her ideas are I must say, luminous. And her use of form in the self-pleasuring piece recalls I’m sure the “V” on Da Vinci’s LAST SUPPER in more ways than one. Not least of which may be a statement on the redoubtable gender of “the loved Apostle”. Bravo, Ms.Emin!
