Critical Review

The work follows the stylistic and philosophical shift in her work around the time of her defining exhibition The Last Great Adventure Is You at the White Cube. Framed by two flowing washes of charcoal watercolour, Emin’s nude form reclines across the negative space at the centre of the composition.

Painted entirely in the same grey colour, the work has an effortless and rhythmic quality so typical of Emin’s drawn, painted, and printed output. Emin’s feminine form fills the composition, and suggests her mature sense of self. Coupled with the poetic title of the work, this watercolour study has a potent sense of intimacy and romance that is distinctive to Emin.
