Textiled Truths

I decided to pay homage to a Kentish heroine of mine: Tracey Emin, who I recently had the pleasure of receiving a lecture from at the Courtauld, and later meeting (briefly).
In her applique projects she created fabric collages of such patterned intensity and emotional force, that I couldn't help but want to do the same...so here it is. My shared secret:
I hold BIG (unnecessary) grudges. 
And in true Emin style, I created a photographic self-portrait with my work.
