This summer the Royal Academy of Arts
presents an exhibition of work by Tracey Emin RA. This is the first exhibition dedicated to Emins monoprints and focuses on works from the last ten years. On the art of printmaking Emin says; Ive always had a love of printmaking because of the magic and alchemy of it all. You never really know how its going to be until you turn the paper over. I think that printmaking is a very intimate practice. These works vary in subject matter but all of them retain a quality of my line.
Tracey Emin was born in London in 1963, where she now lives and works. Her art takes many different forms of expression, including applique, sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, video and installation. Emin first exhibited at the Royal Academy in the 1997 Sensation exhibition, in which she showed the now iconic tent titled Everyone I Have Slept With 1963-1995. In recent years Emin has exhibited regularly in the Royal Academys Summer Exhibition. She was elected painter RA in 2007 and in 2008 Emin curated a group exhibition alongside the Summer Exhibition.
