to the sun
A show that I missed in NYC, by one day, is I'll follow you to the sun works by Tracey Emin at her gallery Lehman Maupin. This work, as much of her work in the last 10 years, has more maturity and a quieter voice then earlier works but of course still has her signature style and hand.
As the anger and brashness disappears from her work it is filled with a peace but also a deep sadness. Her work is always deeply inspiring to me with its honesty and courage.
The interview linked by their website it so worth a read and I look forward to hearing more about her upcoming museum show here in the states.
You can read previous posts on her work here, here, here and here.
