The Book of Hours: Rebecca Clark makes drawings of the natural world, transient moments of grace and beauty in an age of disappearance. Inspired by plant and animal studies of the Northern Renaissance, Netherlandish devotional panel paintings, and nature mysticism as expressed through various forms of art, music, poetry and prose, Rebecca's art acknowledges interconnectedness in nature and our loss of connection with the sacred.
