Peek-a-Boo

There’s an exhibit in London this week of the works of Emma Hack, an Australian body painter. You might know her work from the video “Somebody That I Used to Know” where the two characters in the video are painted.emma-hack-gotye

She’s quite a good painter on canvas, but when you consider that she actually paints people into her images, it’s quite amazing. Here are some of her recent works.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

No blog post tomorrow. Huge lecture at work and then a meeting immediately afterwards. I will be lucky if I am home by midnight!
