Works on paper by Mikko Kallio

”In the beginning work goes quickly, I arrange bits of paper and different objects on the sheet of paper, and that’s the composition. Then I can look at it for weeks. This seedbed is not yet a living one. It is still undefined. Now I need to let things develop and grow.” Mikko Kallio’s works are in many ways archeological. Sand, wood, wool and pieces of paper stratify into colorful, voluminous collage landscapes. These landscapes are populated by figures who wonder around, peek and hide in their surroundings; they gather together in dots and surfaces, they teem with linework. Diverse elements seem to be growing together, like a unique ecosystem.  – Extract from a text written by Jarkko Suhonen (M.A.), based on an interview of Mikko Kallio

Mikko Kallio´s (born 1971, Espoo, Finland) collage works are drawn with ink and graphite and include watercolor with attached found objects. Kallio has exhibited in Finland, Sweden, Germany and USA and his works are included collections such as Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki, HAM Helsinki Art Museum, State of Finland and private collections internationally.
