From her first exhibition in Paris in 1995 to her next solo exhibition August 7th – September 10th in Spokane, WA, Rebecca Hutchinson has been creating amazing works of nature for over 20 years with each being more fascinating then the last. Rebecca has her BA, and MFA in Ceramics from Berea College & the University of Georgia, as well she has been a Professor of Ceramics at UMass Dartmouth since 2001.
Hutchinson’s work is large-scale, installation in format, and concerns for both the observation of place and the intricacy of construction possibilities within each space are incorporated into each site-specific work she creates. Her work embraces qualities in ceramics and the sculpting craft, developmental theory, and observation of both animal and human architecture and systems that have rarely been seen before. Hutchinson’s personal interest in both the human and natural world is clear, and in recent pieces has been influenced by observing plant growth and ecosystem dynamics – this has brought new light to her work and new fans and admirers alike.
