Critical Review

“When I think about sex … it makes me realise just how alone I feel … What the world perceives of me from the outside is not the same from within”. The loneliness that Emin attaches to sex is made manifest in this poignant print from 2002. Set against a blank background, Emin illustrates herself against this void of sorts to highlight the solitary nature of her nude figure. Emin reduces her Nude Self-Portrait to simple line in this work, and pictures herself smiling shyly at the very thought of sex.

Emin has never been an artist to shy away from putting her personal experiences on show to the public through her art. When I Think About Sex is just one print from this confessional exhibition which charted her own experiences and musings on sex and romantic relationships. Through this unassuming yet touching print, Emin alludes to the fears, excitement, bashfulness and anticipation bound to sex.
