Emma Hack, an Adelaide-based visual artist, was born in 1972 and is known for her photographs featuring painted naked human bodies that blend seamlessly with patterned background walls to create a chameleon-like camouflage effect. She developed her unique technique in the early 2000s, drawing inspiration from Australian designer Florence Broadhurst's wallpaper designs. Her method gained widespread exposure through the music video for Gotye's hit song "Somebody That I Used to Know." In 2014, Hack expanded her repertoire to include animals in her work. That same year, Emma Hack established the Emma Hack Art Prize, which awards a $5,000 acquisitive prize and provides exhibition opportunities to South Australian-based artists. Hack has been exhibiting her works throughout Australia since 1999 and has held solo shows at The Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong and the Savina Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea. Her works are represented by galleries across Australia, as well as in London, New York, Singapore, Taipei, and Hong Kong.
