Tracey Emin Discusses "The Shop'

Tracey Emin
Discusses 'The Shop'
- At Tate Modern Tue 08 Dec 2009

On tuesday night I went to a discussion by Tracey Emin about her early work involving 'The Shop'.

It was at Tate Modern, she came late after being at the GQ christmas party, she was openly a little drunk, she began to cry, and she was brilliant.

I have always been interested in Tracey Emin, there's no denying she's an interesting character. A fiery YBA who loves to drink, party and make frank open honest art.
Something that really stuck with me after the talk was her generosity, she naturally gives as much of herself as she can to any situation. Investing herself in this way, underpins, stocks, fills and slightly overflows any project she's involved in, resulting in fascinating experiences and important work. You walk away knowing that Emin would never be one of those people to leave before the party's over or the coffee shop shuts.

Covent Garden find

I bought these two glass antique negatives from Covent Garden Market I love them aspecially the fact they need light behind them to be seen. The bottom one has beautiful colours and beautiful colour blending. Love them.

Three recent sketches, lately I have really loved moving back into using pencil rather than felt-tip or pen. I think this is because of pencil's bending qualities. I find drawings in pencil are emotional and suggest more subtle feelings. Pen & felt-tip are clear, fresh, modern and confident.
Its good to have a balance of the two areas.

Ps. I really like the blending on the middle one.
