'There are atrocities happening all over the world, we should help whenever we can. I hope this work helps the people from Ukraine.' – Tracey Emin?
It was all About Loving you?(2022) is a new edition by Tracey Emin, produced in response to the escalation of conflict in Ukraine.?Depicted through a series of swift lines, a figure reclines alone in a state of longing and desire, apparently caught between despair and ecstasy. As with many of Emin's other works, her prints have a diaristic aspect, and often reference events from the?past. This screenprint, printed by Counter Editions, is typical of the artist's candid practice, which is?both intensely personal and resonantly universal.?As fellow artist Julian Schnabel has said: '[Emin's] need to be honest supersedes all decisions in her life and art. The crystalline presentation of the most intimate and private emotions are what she wants to share with us.'
