Emma Hack

Emma Hack creates artwork that symbolises femininity and strength and being 'at one' with nature and our environment through the eye-catching art of painting her muse into wallpaper design and hand painted canvas.

Each work takes over 8-15 hours as the model stands in front of the hand painted canvas or Florence Broadhurst Wallpaper designs in the past. The camera is set up approximately 5 meters from the model and is the main viewpoint and reference for the 'blend'. Starting at the shoulders Hack uses them as the first reference. Then following down the arms and interior torso, finishing on the face. Not using projection or stencils as she works completely freehand. This result due to the artwork retaining its own quirks and feel, it creates movement on the body, rather than a very flat look. There is minimal retouching, the paint strokes and slight cracking from movement can be seen, which really proves the artwork is genuine.
