Lehmann Maupin announces Stone Love, a solo exhibition of new works by Tracey Emin. Her practice is the result of an intense process of self-discovery in which she transforms her profound and personal anecdotes into universal narratives. The title Stone Love, comes from the first line of David Bowie’s song Soul Love, which explores notions of romantic, physical, and familial love. Though the artist has historically been regarded for her use of various media within a conceptual framework, this new body of work represents a pronounced return to painting.

 

“[IT] IS ABOUT LOVE AND THE REFLECTION OF LOVE;
THE DESIRE TO MELT INTO THE IMAGE OF SOMEONE ELSE.” – TRACEY EMIN
