Emma Hack’s 30th Anniversary Edition III


‘Magnolia Cradled Budgie II'

This is Emma Hack's 30 year Anniversary of her first body painting, a true pioneer of the art form we see today. As a gift to collectors and followers of her work she is offering a third and final for the year, VERY special release valid until Midnight ACDT (Adelaide, Australia) Monday January 4th, 2021.

A beautiful, signed artwork, valued at over $5400 for only $490 AUD.

Emma's muse is serenely holding a budgie and painted into muted Magnolia flowers. Accents of the yellow and greens play against the coral centers of the Magnolia. This is a peaceful work of art, featuring the side on pose of Emma's muse in a difficult blend that is masterfully matched, creating an an illusion as the edges of the human form disappear, leaving a lovely diamond effect of arm, bird and eye as the centre focus.

This artwork was created in 2011 and body painted over a 12 hr application. The artwork is a subtle 'blend' of her muse into her hand-painted background, holding a budgie. The installation was then photographed by Emma for the final result.

'Thank you to all my friends, fans and family that helped me along my journey I do hope you take the opportunity to own this iconic, beautiful piece of my work to add to your collection and treasure it for the years to come’

Framing ideas

I recommend taking your artwork straight to the framer, the artwork is wrapped in acid free tissue paper which will prevent the paper from discolouration, however it's not a permanent storage solution.  I usually frame in a white box frame, float mounting the archival photo rag.  There are many options for framing so please discuss this with your framer for options that suit you and your home. 


Adelaide based framer Elite Framers will frame your artwork in my suggested float mounted frame in white box frame at $260. Please email them with your order number to arrange directly. They will pick up your order when printed and notify you once framed:

Elite Picture Framing, 24 Croydon Rd Keswick, SA 5035
