Tracey Emin- Exorcism of the Last Painting I Ever Made – 1996

This piece was made during the time Emin spent locked in a room for 14 days. The room was located in a gallery and people were invited to watch; the idea of this experience was for Emin to get in touch with her inner self and her own art style.

Emin’s work intrigues me for its autobiographical aspect. I like this painting in particular for its different sections, expressive marks and text
