The whole point of camouflage is to blend in with the environment. Be it the prey or the predator, a beneficial hiding is always the goal. Australian artist, Emma Hack, takes this animal instinct and mystically adapts it by using human body painting and photography. From landscape to complex patterns, the background serves as the perfect environment to create mesmerizing visual illusions. She colorfully challenges you to find the person hiding and once you do, you cant help but smile at such a creative mind and wonder what if we humans could have such a powerful act.
If you happen to be in New York, her work will be showcased at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery starting today till the 12th of March 2014.
