Now I don't hold her in any regard whatsoever but she has this bang on the money well done..
It should make you either smile or cry depending on your experience of covid I imagine..

Apparently the youngest Doris offspring has covid, too many partygoers I guess hide

Sorry Rich, she is just a sad old lefty who needed to raise her profile before we all forgot her.

"Sorry Rich, she is just a sad old lefty who needed to raise her profile before we all forgot her". Yes x2. I for one will not miss her "artistic" dirty underpants.

I won't miss her art either but I admire her taking a stance. Question time last night was a clear indication that he has sat too long & must go.

If labour were a competent bunch right now they would storm home in an election.

It's not simply that Corbyn destroyed what was left of Labour when he took over. but also the fact that Starmer, who on paper should be the right man for the job, just doesn't seem capable of delivering. Being surrounded by lightweights isn't helping either.

As we stand, its the least worst case scenario............ politics has never been so disrespected. Well at least as far as I can remember.

Absolutely Dave but although the much publicised Downing St "party" was silly, I just wish all the press and those who dislike Boris would just put it behind them and let him get on with the important issues after all Brexit isn't done with yet to say nothing of the worrying situation in the Ukraine.

What a generous gift she made...two words in neon script...wow!
No doubt she will try and have both words returned to her so she can sell them like all the other old rubbish she passes off as art

Thank goodness the "art" piece wasn't a selfie, I would think 10 Downing Street would be delighted to hand the work back it's probably been stored in the basement anyway.

hmmm... I beg to disagree :-)

It's no surprise that she's got principles, and is sticking to them.
[Insert line about at least someone in 10 DS has principles, etc]

If her work's not to your taste, that's fine. (& you're not alone!)
Her work provokes reactions, which I think is a good thing in a world of bland mass-production.

fwiw, she's one of only two female Professors of Drawing in the RA's 250 year history, so her peers rate her.
Context: https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/tracey-emin-2590/introduction

For me, I'm as likely to admire a piece as to see nothing in it - but I'd never denigrate the artist or the skill that goes into producing the work.
The world's a better place for having creative talent in it, and we nearly lost this one to cancer in 2020 - which was dealt with dignified discretion: a rarity in this world of celebrity & hysteria.

PS if you value your art by quantity rather than quality, a 2-word Emin Neon sculpture sold at auction in 2016 for $30,750 per word :-)
