Intricate Cut and Fold Paper Art by Peter Callesen

by Danny OldaPosted on

Artist Peter Callesen is mutli-talented with a very specific medium: paper.  Very precisely, Callesen cuts paper and folds portions that are often still attached to the sheet of paper into related objects.  He works in sizes ranging from A4 (as in this series) to large rolls of paper.  Callesen balances negative and positive space much in the same way a painter would work with light and shadow.  In his statement, Callesen further explains his work with A4 paper: “By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.”
