Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007- I

Quiddity: the essence of a thing
Solo Exhibition, Los Angeles Art Associations, Gallery 825
October 17 - November 13, 2009
Rebecca Hamm’s 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.
