Emily Haasch collages

bucket o' blood

Emi­ly Haasch is a col­lage artist and design­er liv­ing in Chica­go. Her gen­er­al col­lage aes­thet­ic is min­i­mal and con­trolled, with bursts of ges­ture and some­times may­hem. A pho­to­graph or care­ful­ly cut paper is often joined with paper that’s been torn or crum­pled, some­times using ink. Emi­ly writes about her process, say­ing, “In my prac­tice, I like to work with the lush­ness of phys­i­cal mate­r­i­al, space, and col­or in order to illus­trate par­tic­u­lar moments of emo­tion. In many pieces, the vari­a­tions of prox­im­i­ty, exclu­siv­i­ty, and escapism are the major focus.”

I intro­duced Emi­ly as a col­lage artist and design­er. In addi­tion to her art­work, she is com­plet­ing a degree in visu­al com­mu­ni­ca­tions at the School of the Art Insti­tute of Chica­go. This has helped yield the pub­li­ca­tion Offline, which focus­es on self-ini­ti­at­ed projects by design­ers, artists, and mak­ers with­in Chica­go.
