 Hadassah Emmerich's practice draws upon notions of identity and otherness using imagery associated with exoticism, femininity and biological plenitude.

Her work is informed by sources including graffiti, pulp fiction and travel advertisements, as well as symbols drawn from her own multi-ethnic background, being of Dutch, Indonesian, Chinese and German descent.

Emmerich's baroque use of iconography, which often includes depictions of exotic women and ornamental foliage, suggests the lure of foreignness but also its snare; a surfeit of lush excess and unbridled sentimentality.
