"Tracey Emin Quotes"


+ Being an artist isn't just about making nice things, or people patting you on the back; it's some kind of communication, a message.

+ I’m a terrible cook, but if I could cook, I would see that as art as well, it’s how much creative energy you put into something.

+ There should be something revelatory about art. It should be totally new and creative, and it should open doors for new thoughts and new experiences.

+ When it comes to words I have a uniqueness that I find almost impossible in art.. and it's my words that actually make my art quite unique.

+ If you’ve made seminal work, you never know when the next one is coming or where it’s coming from. Most artists never make a seminal piece of art in their lives, and if you’ve made two, which I have, then I’ve done all right.

+ My audience comprises everybody, not just the bourgeois. But there are people who don't take me seriously and that annoys me. I work really, really hard. I should be bigger than this.

+ I often think that I don’t really know anything, and then, when I think about my work, and my sewing, and about my blankets, I know what I’m doing: I can cut out a sentence in felt in five minutes; it would take most people that amount of time just to cut out one letter.

+ If I could spell, then I would spell correctly, but I never bothered to learn. So, rather than be inhibited and say I can't write because I can't spell, I just write and get on with it.

+ There's so much stuff said about me that's not true, so now if something is hurtful and wrong, I send an e-mail or letter immediately, saying, This is not true.

+ What's really good about the word 'art' is that 'art' is a word like 'love,' or 'god,' or whatever. It transcends so many things.

+ All the mistakes I've ever made in my life have been when I've been drunk. I haven't made hardly any mistakes sober, ever, ever.

+ I know what I’m doing with my work, and that’s really a nice feeling, that I’ve created something that wasn’t there before, that’s mine.
