Check out Adelaide's newest and personalised gallery
Following on from her success at the SALA festival, Adelaide based artist Emma Hack has extended the lease on the premises at the North Adelaide Village, and now has a permanent gallery and studio to call home. And in conjunction with the opening of the studio, Emma is now displaying her newest works with a theme of Chinoiserie.
Chinoiserie is a decorative style in Western art, furniture, and architecture, originating in the 18th century and characterized by the use of Chinese motifs and techniques. Emma has chosen the Oriental French themes for her latest collection. Through the rich combination of painting on canvas, coupled with body painting and studio-based photography, Emma's work creates a fascinating medium that captures the attention of art lovers and draws rave reviews around the globe. Of the Chinoiserie themed collection, the "Oriental Fir with the Owl" and the "Peach Blossom with the Owl" are truly remarkable pieces of art that combine light, living and beauty.
Aside from the new Chinoiserie exhibition, there are several other works from Emma's previous exhibitions on display and available for sale including some from the Wallpaper series and the Beautiful Women series.
At the rear of the new gallery is a small open studio area where Emma proposes to pinboard her ideas, and to commence painting on the canvas. This open studio area provides an excellent opportunity for visitors and guests to appreciate in real life the enormous efforts that are involved to create an Emma Hack masterpiece.
Emma Hack is a proud Adelaide-based artist working in the unique medium of body paint installation and photography. The Emma Hack Gallery and Studio is located in the boutique North Adelaide Village at 67 O'Connell Street (next to the Un Caffe Bar), and is open from 11am to 5pm on Wednesday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm on weekends. Do yourself a favour and drop in, and show your support to one of Adelaide's greatest living artists.
And for those who can't get enough of Emma's works, the Adelaide City Council is featuring artwork from some of Emma's past exhibitions as well as some new and current works. This exhibition, known as "Eden" is on at the Adelaide City Council's Art Pod from 18th September until 14th November.
