I Can’t Believe How Much I Loved You, calls into question a fact of the past. The crossed out words have been kept as an element of the finished work, as a reminder that our mistakes stay with us.
Tracey Emin makes work in a wide range of media including painting, drawing, film, photography, sewn appliqué, sculpture and neon text. Her art is primarily expressionistic, a cypher for memories and emotions that can be frank and direct, intimate and universal. Her neons are the purest expression of the confessional aspect of her practice. Disarmingly honest, these poetic thoughts are at times confrontational, at times playful, but always thought provoking. With a sense of immediacy these raw statements peel back the inessential to uncover her inner most thoughts and feelings.
Tracey Emin produced I Can’t Believe How Much I Loved You exclusively for Sedition’s Times Square Midnight Moment in February 2013.
