Should New york Pay Attention to Tracey Emin?

By On September 17, 2011 In Art

Tracey Emin‘s confessional, confrontational art is hard to take in large doses. For some, even a small, homeopathic dose is too much – but the cumulative effect is extremely powerful. It is also confusing. Her work churns you up, and leaves you with more than ambivalence. At its best, it touches a sense of abjection; at its worst, it is abject for all the wrong reasons. Sometimes it’s hard to work out which is which.

Emin is a storyteller whose subject matter comes from Emin’s own rich life.
Through the poetry of her honest retelling of unique and intimate life-events Emin establishes a generous dialogue between the viewer and the artist.
