inside her mind...
Oh my goodness thank you, thank you Cardinal Arts. Ms. Cardinal herself left a comment on my post yesterday about Tracey Emin and led me to a mecca of wonderfulness. She let me know that for a period Emin wrote a column for The Independent newspaper in the UK.
Upon learning this I immediately searched for it wanting and hoping for an archive of the articles and it was FOUND. I have only had time to read a few but I love being able to get inside the mind of an artist, especially one that I admire so... I plan on reading each and every one.
They are simple diaristic writings about being an artist and living the life of an artist. I was disappointed by Tracey's memoir Strangeland as it seemed to me to be quite self indulgent. But these columns are perfectly raw and honest and truly about the daily experience of an artist. So excited.
You can see all them here.
