Tracey Emin, she can draw




Shown: Red Girl and Reclining Nude
With this monoprinting thing there is an inevitability that I should discover Tracey Emin.
There was a wonderful Radio 3 interview with her at the beginning of the year. Yesterday I withdrew a book from the library Tracey Emin Works 1963-2006.


Her drawings are precise and fragile. If they are incomfortable then that is as it should be.
" There should be something revelatory about art. It should be totally new and creative and it should open doors for new thoughts and new experiences" Tracey Emin
