Tracey Emin draws upon her own personal experiences to create works that express powerful, visceral emotions concerning sexuality, mortality and the creation of meaning. These works are amongst a number of early prints in which the artist represents details from her childhood, the characteristic intense, spidery lines possess a child-like immediacy that befits the apparently innocent subjects. Monoprinting forms a significant part of Emin’s practice, in which a unique print is created in mirror image to the original drawing. The reflective quality of the process relates to the self-reflexive nature of Emin’s autobiographical practice, in which the details of her life are recorded with an unrelenting honesty.
 
Shown as part of the exhibition Tracey Emin: I need Art like I need God, 1997.
