Vesa-Pekka Rannikko

Studio view, 2021

VESA-PEKKA RANNIKKO (b. 1968) is a versatile artist working with painting, sculpture, video and installation. Where as his abstract works seek to refer only to themselves and the process of making them, the figurative works, or “lying sculptures”, raise questions about the work’s relationship to reality, its topic, and the linguistic nature of vision.
