Emma Hack is an Adelaide-based artist working in the unique medium of body paint installation and photography. Exhibiting extensively throughout Australia since 1999, Emma’s astounding artworks have since captured the attention of collectors and art lovers worldwide.
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, and our rug collaboration seeks to capture this visual splendour.
Hand tufted in exquisite detail, the photographed female form is captured through subtle design and shifting wool and bamboo hues. Incorporating the human forms through careful translation of Emma’s sharp and balanced photography proved to be a unique challenge – our interpretation of depth of field and layering has created a truly exceptional collaboration.
