Emma Hack

Adelaide-based artist, Emma Hack, has been exhibiting extensively throughout Australia since 1999. Through a combination of painting on canvas, body painting and studio-based photography, Emma's works evoke a rich array of visual narrative and magical realism.

This artist I found in a Ripleys book i was given, its simular to guinness world record books but shows talent and amazing stories from around the world. I really loved this image, Emma paints people for long periods of time to blend into a background, usually using flock wallpaper to make it more detailed and intricate. She has done many versions of this using different wallpapera and models but this one has the most class and detail. I like how she painted the lips red to match the bird in the ladys hands, just enough colour to indicate where the lady is stood.
