The works of Anni Rapinoja, who has studied geography and botany, are the results of versatile studies, in which the theory and art are combined. Plants and parts of them, droppings of animals etc. are part of the cycle of the nature. In a certain stage of decomposition they transform to basis for new growth, to humus. The growth of forests, swamps and shores speak to the artist, who refers to willow, moose and reed as her workmates. The essence of the workmate has to be visible; the artist feels to be “only” the medium of this view. Sometimes also eco-energy: sun, wind or water is needed to give shape to the work.
