Tracey Emin PaintingsWith a conversation with David Dawson and essay by Jennifer Higgie

Price AUD$160.00

The first serious study on the paintings of the female icon and one of the most celebrated British artists, Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin CBE is known for her frank, confessional style and for transforming her inner world into intimate works of art. She has become one of the most celebrated artists in the world, a household name, and part of the Art establishment.

Her practice includes painting, drawing, film, photography, sewn appliqué, sculpture, and neon, but in recent years she has focused on painting. Inspired by artists Egon Schiele and Edvard Munch, her paintings are provocative, confrontational, and vulnerable. They are at once deeply personal and universal, and it’s for this reason her work is revered around the world, and she has become an international icon.

The book features more than 300 images of Emin’s gestural and expressive figurative paintings, from the 1990s to today, as well as a conversation with close friend David Dawson and an essay by Australian writer Jennifer Higgie.

Made in close collaboration with the artist, this special book is the first publication dedicated to Emin’s emotive paintings and showcases her soulful work like never before.
