Hot Summer Night

Riika Fransila
Collage Art on paper,
using vintage material
and found imagery.
27 x 35 cm (aprox)

Riikka’s surreal collages juxtapose imagery that otherwise would not be caught together: human faces and body parts, flowers, plants, cars, and many other paraphernalia. She consciously reduces the number of elements more and more, until achieving a zen minimalism of sorts. The witty, humorously subversive works, so much more than the sums of the parts, attest to her substantial awareness of surrealism, Pop-art and Dadaism, and her command over the evoking, mystical power of the visual.
