Extreme Paper Cuts With Artist Peter Callesen


A4papercuts-peter-callesen-picame3

Peter Callesen can turn an ordinary sheet of white paper into a brilliant story. His delicate installations involve the transformation of flat sheets into cut and folded figures that grow from the paper and fill the 3D space.

Callesen says, “It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today, but we rarely notice the actual materiality. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.”

We love his work, and think you will too.
