stillness and a glimpse of white

Rullakartiini 2006

Talvipuutarha 2006

Unlike his master Penti Kaskipuro, Riippa employs colour. However, what they share is the ambition for timelessness and the fondness for still lifes. Riippa seldom uses an object for a model; rather than aiming for detailed resemblance, he conveys the character of things.

Riippa Esa (Finnish, b.1947)
