Critical Review

Described by Emin as “My endless imagining of new life, faced with the question of how that might ever be”, Insane Reflection is a print about her musings on children and new life. Emin decided to not have children because she wanted to prioritise her artistic career above all else. She has commented on the hypocrisy of her situation, saying that “There are good artists that have children. Of course there are. They are called men”. The pregnant or birthing figure in this composition is faceless, and perhaps signals Emin’s curiosity in the ordeal of childbirth. The embroidered flower to the right of the composition draws the viewer’s eye with its texture and colour, and maybe signifies Emin’s greatest conception: her art.
