Emma Hack’s 30th Anniversary Edition


‘Phoenix Rising'

This is Emma Hack's 30 year Anniversary of painting 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 VERY special release valid until May 11th, 2020.

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

This divine, iconic artwork embraces the feminine with ‘Phoenix Rising’ featuring Emma’s muse immersed within a Florence Broadhurst archive wallpaper work surrounded by butterflies.

The Phoenix has many meanings in different cultures, the Fire Phoenix rising from the ashes, to the Empress Phoenix femme in Asian cultures.

This artwork was body painted over 15 hrs application and is a gorgeous display of intricate design and a close-to perfect ’blend'.  The installation was adorned with butterflies and then photographed by Emma for the final result.

‘I can’t believe it’s been 30 years since I painted my first full body paint. I dreamt of all the things I would create and achieve throughout my career and I’m so happy most of them have come true.

Thank you to all my friends, fans and family that helped me along the way 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 Atkins Pro Lab will frame your artwork in my suggested float mounted frame in white at $300, please email them with your order number to arrange directly:
