When I Think About Sex.....
by Princess Julia

Questions arise when fathoming 'the human condition', our beloved Tracey takes on a gamut of thoughts and emotions at a stage of her life where sexual abstinence has taken presidency but is never far from her thoughts. A sense of serenity engulfs the viewer, her neutral colour palette is deceiving, and upon closer inspection the twisted tales self-analysis and bygone love-lost are revealed. The media is dwelling on the idea that Emin paints, but we knew that anyway. Her delicate canvasses and etchings are indeed masterful and very wan table as are embroidered blankets and prize 'rozzetes'. But I love the hysterical underpinnings that hold Emins thought process together.
