Always at the centre of her own world, Tracey Emin shares her life, beliefs and feelings through her work with compassion and wit. Emin took the Paralympic values of Inspiration and Determination as the starting point for her print and created what she describes as a \'love letter\'. Two small birds, delicately perched on branches, appear to kiss beneath the words \'You inspire me with your determination And I love you\'. The Agitos floats below them like feathers or leaves falling from the tree. Birds have frequently appeared in Emin\'s drawings to symbolise freedom and strength, whilst her use of handwritten text expresses personal thoughts and emotions. Her print is an inspiring dedication to the Paralympic Games and athletes.
