Laila Pullinen (b. 1933 Terijoki (now Zelenogorsk, Russia), d. 2015 Helsinki)

Laila Pullinen played a significant role in rejuvenating the formal language of sculpture in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. In her informalist, asymmetrical sculptures, experiments with materials combine with abstract expression and tales from antiquity.
