Taken from a series of drawings made in 2006, "The Beginning of Me" is a particularly frank self portrait of the artist. Emin has described herself as being 'slightly embarrassed by its openness, almost like an invitation.' But this self-consciousness is alleviated by distance she feels from the figure here of a much younger persona, one imagined she says 'from a long time ago, a time when I felt very different. A time when sex was all important and primal'.
Always at the centre of her own world, Tracey Emin uses all aspects of her life in her art, turning intimate autobiography into broader statements about sex, love, death, freedom and everyday life. Her work has taken the form of diaristic drawings, paintings, films, sculptures and written stories, all of which convey the same combination of frustration, pain, compassion and wit. Drawing and printmaking have remained key mediums for Emin, and over the last ten years she has produced a steady output of monotype prints direct from her drawings.
