About the Edition

'I Love My Innocence' was made at the new Counter Studios in Tracey Emin's hometown of Margate, Kent and was inspired by the theme of 'childhood'. This new lithograph is closely linked to her recent paintings in which Emin articulates the joy and suffering that is intrinsic to human existence. There is an uninhibited energy to Emin's new works, as she powerfully inscribes emotional turmoil through a freer yet assertive form of gestural figuration. Focusing on her own body as a conduit for her feelings, she connects with a history of expressive figuration in art, from the moving realism of Käthe Kollwitz to the modernist angst of Edvard Munch or the heightened sexuality of Egon Schiele’s female subjects. Emin's 'game-changing' solo show 'A Fortnight of Tears' at London's White Cube gallery received widespread critical acclaim earlier this year. Emin's current solo exhibition 'An Insane Desire for You' runs at Art Projects Ibiza until 1st October 2019. Whilst, her major exhibition 'The Fear of Loving' at Musée d'Orsay, Paris runs until 29th September 2019 in which the British artist selected drawings from the museum's collection, rarely presented to the public, bringing them into dialogue with her own works.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS is a fundraising set of fine art prints that celebrates 100 years of Save the Children. Two thirds of the profits from the sale of Tracey Emin's print will be donated to Save the Children. The Save the Children Fund is a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570).

Work began on the 100 Years project in 2018 when we were asked by Greg Nugent (of Inc London) if we could get involved in help raise funds for, and awareness of, the Save the Children’s centenary celebrations. We had worked with Greg before to make the London 2012 official prints.

Together with Sir Nicholas Serota and Tracey Emin we invited 10 international artists to make a print which reflected broadly on the theme of childhood. As always, it’s a fascinating and exciting process developing a series of prints and seeing how different artists respond to the brief.

There has also been the added pleasure of producing the majority of the prints in our new print studio in Margate which has allowed us to give extra time and attention to creating them. The outcome of this is that we have been able to produce a truly exceptional portfolio of work.

We are proud to be involved with Save the Children. We will be donating 1/3 of the profits from sale of the prints to the charity which provide vital support for the incredibly important work that they carry our with vulnerable children around the world.

About the Artist

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.

Tracey Emin was born in 1963 in London. She shares her time between the South of France, London and Margate.

Emin has exhibited extensively including solo exhibitions at Château La Coste, Aix-en-Provence, France (2017); Leopold Museum, Vienna (2015); Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami (2013); Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (2012); Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK (2012); Hayward Gallery, London (2011); Kunstmuseum Bern (2009); Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (2008); Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Malaga, Spain (2008); Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2003); and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2002). In 2007 Emin represented Great Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennale and her installation My Bed has been included in ‘In Focus’ displays at Tate Britain with Francis Bacon (2015), Tate Liverpool with William Blake and also at Turner Contemporary, Margate alongside JMW Turner (2017). In 2011, Emin was appointed Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and in 2012 was made Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for her contributions to the visual arts.

Her largest artwork to date is currently installed at St Pancras International, London and This summer Emin will conceive ‘The Fear of Loving’, a new iteration of the Museum d’Orsay’s ‘d’Orsay seen by’ exhibitions. A series of dialogues between contemporary works and those from the collection, this will be the first drawn from its preeminent drawings collection.
