Hadassah Emmerich – The Great Ephemeral Skin
Since 2016, Emmerich has worked with a new painting technique, using stencils cut from vinyl flooring, which she covers with oil paint and then impresses onto canvas, paper or a wall. Referring to the visual language of advertising and Pop art, she creates images that both aestheticise and problematize the female body. She depicts the paradox of simultaneous attraction and repulsion, intimacy and cool detachment, seduction and critique. In this way, Emmerich succeeds in making the act of looking truly provocative.
I had the pleasure of contributing the main essay to the book.
