This polymer gravure print by Tracey Emin, an edition of 150, 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. Delicate and precise but with dark undertones as the figure's blacked-out face and emphasised shadows suggest, Further Back to You hints at the 'other': another person, an alter-ego or equally simply the artist herself. In this way, the print encapsulates Emin's trademark emotional, analytical reflection through the depiction of a thoughtful and poised moment of beauty
