I Followed You To The Sun


Having been a Tracey Emin fan for so many years, I feel like her latest solo show at both Lehmann Maupin's Chelsea and Chrystie Street locations,  exhibits a more mature, less dramatic Tracey who is in love with nature, animals, men and romantic sex.  "I Followed You To The Sun" comprises more than 100 pieces including oil-on-canvases, drawings, monoprints, embroideries, one short film (with, cats, foxes and other animals outside Tracey's backyard in France), an amazing bright yellow neon from an edition of three and a series of bronze sculptures that were fabricated in the same foundry used by Louise Bourgeois. The opening night was a huge success and the dinner and party at Freemans provided the perfect British hunting lodge setting to honor this wild child who came into her own a few months short of her 50th birthday.  Brava Tracey!
