Pekka Nissinen, Spectrum of Life – Retro

Sun 13.1.2019 Time 23:59

Varuskuntakatu 11, 45100 Kouvola

Pekka Nissinen’s works still show the cubistic style that influenced him when he was young. He has, however, varied his themes and styles and even avoided cubism at times: “In 1980, I started all over by painting the views and buildings in Marlebäck.” The landscapes have since changed and the buildings torn down, but Nissinen’s colourful painted illusions remain. Since then, he has incorporated in his work stronger colours and abstract constructions reminiscent of cubism as well as paintings on wood, sculptures and woodcut monotypes. Over time, he developed Poikilo – a forest boy’s rite to the maiden he has chosen.

“I think of my production as a single image – a puzzle from which you can pick smaller theme groups to make up the spectrum of life. My motto is: If an artist claims to have found him- or herself, they also recognise their mannerisms.”
