Insane Reflection is a 2006 screen print by Tracey Emin, released in a signed print edition of 200. The screen print is punctured with an embroidered fabric flower in red at the top right of the composition. To the left of this embroidered flower is a figure who appears to be pregnant, with a strange form on the ground before it. The rest of the composition is left blank, and the title of the work, Emin’s signature and the edition number of the work appear beneath the print.
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.

My experience as a first time seller with MyArtBroker was nothing short of brilliant! I have to admit to being very apprehensive and nervous, had no idea what to expect and a head full of questions. Little did I know I had nothing to worry about. I was expertly guided through the whole process by the wonderful Celine who, as expected is knowledgable and prof...
