► This book is an extensive presentation of the work of sculptor Veikko Nuutinen (born 1944). During his career of over four decades, Nuutinen has consistently worked in the tradition of modernist expression, deepening and varying his central thematic, which combines his respect for both nature and mankind. As a humanist seeking harmony, he presents these themes through an abstract and thus also a timeless rendering, instead of figurative expression. The premise of his artistic expression, however, is always that of classical sculpturality: dynamics, vigour, plasticity, rhythm and beauty – the terms that Nuutinen himself uses when describing his artistic goals.
