mad tracey from margate..


although i'm usually sceptical, sometimes even irritated when it comes to conceptual or modern art, i'm totally into british artist tracey emin. some people call her a pissed-off feminist, but looking at her work carefully makes one realize she's actually a romantic and vulnerable soul..her brutal honesty strikes you right where it's supposed to. since she revealed a retrospective exhibition two weeks ago, the latest vogue uk issue published a collection of her friends and colleagues' thoughts on tracey and her work..and all of this perfectly suits my current 'completely fed up with fashion all around' mood.

I just found your blog and I love it, I also recently did a post on Tracey Emin. I'm still not 100% sure how I feel about her, but she is a very inspiring woman.

Interesting. I've never heard of her, but I'm curious to look more into her and her work now. Thanks for the introduction!

Hi Sadie! Thank-you for the comment on my blog. This post fits in perfectly with my interests as I love contemporary art and the origniality of Tracy Emin's work. Have you been to the Saatchi Gallery? I also love anything traditionally British or patriotic (minus the Royal Family!) and so I simply adore the third picture down...
