Hadassah Emmerich Dutch, b. 1974


Residing and working in Brussels, Belgium, Hadassah Emmerich intricately weaves diverse themes into her paintings, works on paper, and  installations. Her creations explore subjects like identity and the body, representations of the exotic, and the interplay between abstraction and figuration.


Emmerich's artistic process involves selecting materials from an array of sources, including vintage photography books, texts, advertising, and art historical reference books. These elements are skillfully fused through a process of photomontage, subsequently transferred onto the canvas through a combination of painting and printing techniques. This method results in a unique visual language that reflects the artist's thoughtful engagement with a multiplicity of influences.
