These works are so desirable, they now sell privately and at auction for many thousands of dollars, and they are becoming more scarce and difficult to find as time goes on. This particular piece is in excellent condition - and would look terrific when framed and exhibited. It's message also makes it a beautiful gift. "My Heart is with You Always" is a highly collectible embroidered handkerchief created by Tracey Emin. It is inspired by her popular neon light installations that spell out her intimate thoughts, desires, fears, and passions, in her recognizable script. As demonstrated in this piece, Emin’s work is frequently self-referential, and she consistently illustrates her own experiences and emotions in intense, intimate engagements with the viewer. Again, this fabric work is accompanied by a signed and dated tag, with the lovely inscribed message, "With You in Mind."
In excellent condition with original folds, as issued by the artist, and has never been framed.
Signed, inscribed in ink on tag by Tracey Emin ("With You in Mind"). The tag is undated, and the work is from 2015.
Provenance: Acquired from the artist
