This polymer gravure print by Tracey Emin, an edition of 100 created by the artist specifically to coincide with her major exhibition 'The Last Great Adventure is You' at White Cube Bermondsey, reflects the work of a mature artist who presents contemplative images of her own life with an unabashed honesty and candour. In this print, Emin uses her signature fluid and minimal line to create a figurative image - a self-portrait as classical reclining nude - that is at once immediate and arresting. The work follows in this grand art historical tradition, relating, in particular, to the emotionally heightened work of Egon Schiele, but by painting herself Emin turns the notion of the objectifying male gaze on its head. Succinct and tender, 'In My Mind II' combines the emotional, analytical reflection for which Emin has become known, with a thoughtful and poised moment of beauty.
