Tracey Emin Matkin 1997 is an Aquatint Etching on wove paper. This piece is signed limited edition of 10, published in 1997. ‘Matkin’ is a piece that exemplifies Emin’s playful and romantic nature. The use of ‘Kin’ throughout some of her artworks indicates people who are close to her. ‘MatKin’ was dedicated to her boyfriend at the time Mat Collishaw. The fragile intimacy of the pencil sketching lays bare her vulnerability in that moment. ‘MatKin’ is a love note as an art piece, hastily scribbled in a moment of inspiration.

This artwork has been floated in a white box frame.
