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 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.
Within the past year, Emma has held successful solo shows in New York City, London, Hong Kong, Perth and Taipei and she has had great success at art fairs in Singapore, Brussels, Aspen, The Hamptons, Hong Kong and Milan.
Her 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 550 million people worldwide and she has since worked on major artistic commissions for the Motor Accident Commission in South Australia and the WA Ballet. Her work is held in numerous private and corporate collections globally.
