Tracey Emin, My Heart is With You Always (Pink and Blue), 2015
Makes a memorable and highly collectible gift for the ages! Another work similar like the present one, but with the read heart and red embroidered text reading "My Heart is With You Always", also uniquely signed and inscribed, sold at Christie's in London for about $33,000 in 2018! and others have sold for over $25,000. This is one of the most desirable Tracey Emin works -- a fantastic embroidered handkerchief with an attached tag bearing a handwritten inscription in ink reading, "With you in mind", and hand signed by Tracey Emin, acquired directly from the artist's studio before she completely sold out. The work is hand signed but unnumbered, though it is said to have been created in an edition of approx. 50. Its message also makes it a beautiful gift. 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.
Signature: Signed, inscribed in ink on tag by Tracey Emin ("With You in Mind"). The tag is dated 2015.
Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist
