Rebecca Hammʼs large-scale watercolor paintings in Quiddity: the essence of a thing present points where nature overcomes and reclaims --gradually or dramatically-- human constructs. Hamm creates energetic, abstracted visions that overflow with color and hidden life. At a distance, the stream emerges and the rock forms in a constant state of flux. The serenity of nature is simultaneously presented as mysterious and comforting; fascinating and awe striking; terrifying and instructive.
