The title for my show is self-explanatory: love rarely comes easily and if it does, it usually goes quite quickly. And there is death, and loss, which at some point in our lives we all have to deal with. I'm constantly fighting with the notion of love and passion. Love, sex, lust — in my heart and mind there is always some battle, some kind of conflict. This show is essentially a drawings show. Everything is simple and linear, straight to the point. The show is to coincide with the release of my book ‘One Thousand Drawings' published by Rizzoli. New works in the show include an animation, made up of many drawings of a woman masturbating. I say, a woman, because I didn't necessarily mean it to be myself, but it is a symbol of lust and loneliness, as well as self-preservation. Other works in the show date from as early as 1991. There is a simplicity and modesty about this show that has made me feel very happy and complete, like I have gone a full circle and I'm back to what I really know. Tracey Emin 2009
