What does Gotye and Florence Broadhurst have in common?

Are you familiar with the art of Emma Hack? I first noticed Emma’s work at the Affordable Art Fair in Sydney in 2009. How could you not notice? What looked like Florence Broadhurst wallpapers suddenly started moving. A body (usually of a woman) suddenly came in to view as they were painted in the same pattern. They seemed to be floating infront of the canvas. And if you’ve been following my blog, you know I am a HUGE fan of the Florence Broadhurst patterns.

Emma is ‘Popping Up’ at Signature Prints in the coming weeks to showcase her new release of Limited Edition Art! The artist explains “… merging the human body with the wallpaper designs of Florence Broadhurst results in an illusory, stunning image of nude humanity on natural, stylish patterns”.


This Pop Up exhibition marks the exciting release of two new designs from the Florence Broadhurst Archive featuring Emma’s muse camouflaged into the wallpaper environment. Emma explains that her “… choices ‘Fans’ and Phoenix’ are bold, oriental designs that are quite different from past works… in lower editions so very collectable”.

Friday 29th November: 9am – 5pm

And on Saturday 30th November, Emma Hack will be doing a meet and greet, 11am at Signature Prints. The artist will explain the process she goes through when creating her unique pieces, how she came to collaborate with Signature Prints and what she finds so intriguing about Florence Broadhursts’ designs.
