Hadassah Emmerich Dutch, b. 1974

HADDASSAH EMERICH (b.1974, Heerlen, Netherlands), lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. In her paintings, work on paper and painterly installations Hadassah Emmerich interweaves varied themes such as identity and the body, representations of the exotic and the dialogue between abstraction and figuration.

Emmerich selects material from a variety of sources including vintage photography books, texts, advertising and art historical reference books, which are fused together through a process of photomontage which is then transferred onto the canvas using a combination of painting and printing.
