Poor Tracey Emin has been violated. From the BBC:
An ex-art student who worked alongside artist Tracey Emin has been jailed for 16 months for forging her work.
Jonathan Rayfern, 32, was jailed by a judge at Manchester Crown Court after he admitted 10 counts of fraud and one of deception.
His defence said the fakes were made to pay off loan sharks.
He should have paid them in formaldehyde.
The artist said her art came from the heart and she was "upset and distressed" that people had been conned.
Who wouldn't be? Someone with no talent has been flogging worthless tat, a market Emin thought to have cornered.
Speaking of corners, Rayfern had been getting away with it for some time, but he slipped up with the unmade bed, which sports a rogue hospital corner.
