Tracey Emin Biography ArtLyst
Here are some highlights of the recent Tracey Emin exhibition held at the White Cube Gallery,London May- July 2009. There can be few artists who reveal the intimate details of their life so powerfully and with such candour as Tracey Emin. She works across a wide variety of media: drawing, filmmaking, installation, painting, neon, photography, sewn work and sculpture. Her work is both intensely personal and resonantly universal and, as fellow artist Julian Schnabel said recently: "Tracey's need to be honest supercedes all decisions in her life and art. The crystalline presentation of the most intimate and private emotions are what she wants to share with us."
