Tracey Emin is one of the most famous artists working in Britain today. Born in London in 1963, she grew up in Margate and experienced a difficult childhood. Her teenage years provided the inspiration for much of her later work, which is autobiographical and often shockingly frank. This book accompanies her first retrospective exhibition in the UK, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and covers the full range of her work over the past twenty years, including embroidered blankets, paintings, sculptures, films, neons, and drawings. It features a biographical introduction by Patrick Elliott, Chief Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and a text by the artist Julian Schnabel.

About the author (2008)

Patrick has been writing for years while stuck in the corporate world focusing on customer service and management due to his love helping people and touching their lives. After hearing multiple versions of "Why aren't you published yet?" along with threats of bodily, possibly physical harm from friends and family if forced to read one more novel before he was published he relented. The novel you hold will be with your help the beginning of a new chapter in the author's life.
