Tracey Emin, The Perfect Place To Grow, 2001
"…to lose that unconditional love is a greater loss than actually losing my Dad, because it's something that I've always had, whether he's been around or not. So it's more like I've lost a feeling, which is very strange. It's left a big hole somewhere."
I watched the Artscape interview with Tracey Emin last night and was blown away. Tracey is not only a brilliant artist, but a wonderful and warm speaker who has lived more lives than I ever will. Over the years she has developed a beautiful, logical wisdom that resonated so very strongly with me. A truly fascinating woman.
Danica also recently saw it, and she writes far more eloquently than I on Tracey and her work. Go here.
