COLLAGE opens discussion about what happens to the thousands of images stored in the cloud or other devices, why do we hold them, how can they be dear to us if we never print them, is this part of our continuous disposable lifestyle or it there something we can do to treasure these moment more? Accompanying Emma’s editions will be originals of each background work, collaged with the female form, a first chance to own an original artwork, only available from Emma Hack Gallery.
Emma has received great acclaim for her refined body paint camouflage technique; through a combination of painting on canvas, body painting and studio-based photography, her work evokes a rich array of visual narrative and magical realism.
Best known for her Wallpaper series (2005-2013)- in which she painstakingly camouflaged the human form by hand painting her models into the remarkable designs of the late Florence Broadhurst. Emma Hack’s diverse artwork collections draw inspiration from the unique Australian flora and fauna, as well as Oriental influences and expanding to fine embroidered portraits.
Emma Hack’s collaboration with Grammy award winning musician Gotye resulted in the iconic, award winning music video for Somebody That I Used to Know, which has been viewed by over a Billion people worldwide, raising her profile in the US, UK and Europe. Emma has since worked on major artistic commissions for luxury brands and the artistic community including her 'Madame Hanoi’ portrait, currently the largest body art mural in the world, standing at 8m in height, gracing the walls of Celebrity Chef, Nic Watt’s restaurant of the same name in Adelaide.
Emma Hack opened her own, flagship gallery and studio in North Adelaide, re-launching in the centre of Adelaide throughout 2018. Emma is represented by galleries throughout Australia, Singapore and London. Her work is held in numerous private and corporate collections globally.
