A new comprehensive monograph on the work of an enduring icon of contemporary art.
Compiled in close collaboration with the
artist and unprecedented in its scope, this definitive book collects ten
years of Tracey Emin's drawings, paintings, sculptures, appliqus and
embroideries, neons, video stills, and installations. A multimedia
artist whose intensely personal work blurs the boundaries between art
and life, Emin remains one of the most highly publicized contemporary
British artists and continues to stir as much controversy as she has
Moving chronologically through a prolific
decade of work-from major public installations to recent reflective
paintings and sculptures-this book shows a coherent vision that defies
the idiosyncrasies of Emin's evolution as an artist. The same mixture of
anger, hope, curiosity, and vulnerability that informs her delicate
drawings and handwritten neon works can be felt in the darker tones of
recent monoprints and the weight of later bronze pieces.
Written by Jonathan Jones, whose text places
Emin's work in a broad art-historical context and sees this recent
decade of her artwork as an entry point to examining her full career,
this is a beautiful monograph on one of the world's most influential
Tracey Emin, CBE, was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1999 and chosen to represent Britain at the fifty-second Venice Biennale in 2007. Emin is also a member of the Royal Academy of Arts. Jonathan Jones is an English art critic who writes for The Guardian. He has been a judge for the BP Portrait Award and the Turner Prize, and is the author of two books.
"A multimedia artist whose intensely personal work blurs the boundaries between art and life, Emin remains one of the most highly publicized contemporary British artists and continues to stir as much controversy as she does acclaim."
"This monograph examines a decade of the British contemporary artist's illustrious career, including an in-depth look at the varied works - paintings, sculptures, video stills, installations - that have made her one of today's most prolific and influential living talents."
