She said: 'In respect of the emergence of forgeries on the market I'm seriously concerned that the forgeries and fakes are damaging to myself as well as collectors and investors in my work.It's distressing that some forger might fabricate some deeply personal object using Tracey Emin's name without being her deeply personal employee. Investors beware! Will I next be forced to doubt exactly who and what has been in Tracey Emin's vagina?
'From my perspective inferior artworks produced in my name damaged my reputation and credibility as an artist.
'My artwork is deeply personal and comes from my heart. It hurts and distresses me to see these fakes and forgeries that have no regard, respect or understanding of what I do.
'With a view to others, I'm upset and distressed to think people have been conned.'
