Tracey Emin is one of the most well-known artists from the YBA (Young British Artist) generation. Her art can be both disarmingly frank and also intensely poetic and personal. This work depicts the words I Listen To The Ocean And All I Hear Is You in a gentle neon blue, and captures the form of the artist’s own handwriting.
Growing up in the British seaside town of Margate, Emin would have gazed over the sea regularly and this work powerfully conjures an essence of the memories that might resonate within the artist’s mind. Her work often engages with the legacy of feminism, where at times the sea has been used as a symbol of freedom. Working directly with the artist, s[edition] brings you the this exclusive limited edition.
