David Maupin on Tracey Emin’s ‘Trust Yourself’

Tracey Emin’s Trust Yourself, was chosen specifically by Tracey for [the TWO x TWO auction]. She has shown in Texas many times and it is an important place for her. Her neon works often incorporate passionate terms about love, affection, and are filled with deep emotion. This idea of tangible passion relates directly with TWO x TWO; everyone who is involved with the event is unbelievably passionate about what they are raising awareness for. There is an electricity that is indescribable during the auction that is exceptional to experience, so I think this work will be perfect for this event.” — David Maupin
