Peter Callesen’s white paper cuts and sculptures
Peter Callesen is a Danish artist who uses paper to create beautiful sculptures.
Half Way Through (detail) 2006, by Peter Callesen
Peter says about his work:
Most recently I have started making white paper cuts/sculptures inspired by fairytales and romanticism exploring the relationship between two and three dimensionality, between image and reality. I find the materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form as an almost magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts.
Check Peter’s website for images of his work, including many papercut works and sculptures ranging from tiny to quite huge.
