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.
