1ST BIT OF GOOD NEWS ….

So, I got this email ….

I’m the editor for a new book on creative people and their processes titled Great Minds Don’t Think Alike. The book consists of 56 short essays each about a different person, accompanied by an illustration on the facing page.

The book’s illustrators came across the photo on your 2008 blog post for Contemporary Art ETC about meeting Tracey Emin and want to use it as part of the illustration for the piece on Emin. I’m not 100% sure that the photo belongs to you, but I’m hoping you can advise if not – and if so I would be grateful if you would give us permission to use it in the book.

And yes it is my photo – search my blog for Emin to read my review – I interviewed her prior to her retrospective exhibition in Edinburgh.

About SARAH WILSON

Artists Statement A conceptual artist whose work and research centres round the subject of glamour, 1920-60's actresses and memory. Member of the printmakers workshop for the past 10 years and works predominantly with woodcuts but has recently discovered the joy of Toyobo relief printing so be prepared for more of them. My work involved photographing, sketching, printing and reworking images . I like things that look like mistakes, loving the medium and the rawness of the printed image. My influences are fairly diverse but when in doubt I cant go wrong with Bruce Nauman, Picasso, Matthew Barney, Helen Chadwick and anything to do with the Flux Movement. Happy to take on your commissions - just email me at vilebodies@hotmail.com sarah-ewilson.co.uk View all posts by SARAH WILSON
