Carbon paper drawing with a stone, framed
32 x 24 cm (each)

Mikko Rikala is an artist who also focuses heavily on using our natural environment for his art, whether nature is the subject or the tool. His work is a reflection that merges mystical and philosophical thoughts through the empirical process of observation, as he explores the relativity of time, speed, distance, presence, and absence.
