Rose-Mari Torpo - Square
My work is a stone installation located by the bird watchtower in Reila, Rihtniemi. I collected stones from the surroundings and near by beach and reorganised them underneath the bird watchtower. The work is a temporary and subtle change in nature. It will be affected and changed by the weather, animals and people. The unique and beautiful state of the location functions as a base as well as inspiration for my work. I have painted and coloured white squares on the stones as well as modelled some new stones from white clay.
