Tracey, eighty times: the faces and facettes of unqualified candor.


“Tracey Emin has no secrets, she exposes herself utterly, you can see there are no skeletons in her closet because the closet door is open and you are welcome to look inside. Her art is not a record of emotion, but the hot stew of emotion as it comes fresh from the heart—anger, pain, confusion, desolation, occasionally happiness—always with the implicit question ‘What is going on here?’” Lynn Barber Parkett No. 63, 2001
