Tracey Emin's moving series of neonworks, "I Promise To Love You," is comprised of six written love messages animated especially for Midnight Moment. In this unique moving image, the glowing words made of neon lights slowly spell themselves out, as if being written by a ghost or an invisible presence. The gentle electric pulsing of the lettering gradually builds into a powerful potent red, leaving the viewer in no doubt about the power of love.

Emin often uses events from her own life as a starting point for her art. Her work can be romantic, humorous, tragic, angry, hard-hitting and hopeful, and is often animated by playful wit. Working across a range of media her body of work includes painting, drawing, sculpture, video, installation and needlework.
