Tracey Emin CBE RA evidences what she calls “the magic and alchemy” of printmaking in this visceral work. It’s one of three special prints the artist created for RA Editions.

Emin’s passion for the form comes from its unpredictability and intimacy – you never really know how the final work will look until you turn the paper over. Apparent is the quality of her lines; as in other areas of her practice, she has drawn on her own life experiences.

Emin produced Dark Womb while in the RA Schools’ printmaking studios, alongside our students.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the Royal Academy Schools.

The Artist

Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin is an English contemporary artist who was born in 1963. She works across a variety of mediums such as needlework, painting, sculptures, video, photography, drawing and installation. The content of Emin’s work often reflects elements of the expressive and confessional and her installations are bold and profound, as she is unafraid to depict aspects of her own life to form her compositions. At the Royal Academy of Arts, Emin offers advice and talks to developing artists in her position as Professor of Drawing. She is sometimes considered in relation to the Stuckism group, which was founded by her previous partner, Billy Childish, after suggesting that Emin was stuck in the past.
