Developing an intensely personal oeuvre packed with confrontational, brutally honest reflections upon the self, Tracey Emin is perhaps the most pioneering female artist of our time. Emin’s scrawling, telling approach is acutely felt in this small-scale lithograph depicting two figures engaged in primitive, yet universalizing intimacy. A wandering cat offsets the composition and imperfect block letters read “EVERY BODIES BEEN THERE,” making this a work that implicates both the mind and the senses.

Tracey Emin (British, b. 1963) is an English artist and member of the Britarts or YBAs (Young British Artists). Her humorous yet tragic oeuvre encompasses painting, drawing, video, and installation, as well as photography, needlework, and sculpture. Personal and provocative, Emin privileges her viewer as both voyeur and confidante revealing intimate hopes, humiliations, failures, and successes. For this reason, it can be said that the body of her work holds roots in feminist discourse as she contends private matters with inherently political motivations and radical intentions. In 2007 she was selected to join the Royal Academy of Arts in London as a Royal Academician and represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in the same year. Emin has lectured at such venerable institutions as the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate Britain.
