Peter Callesen: A4 Papercuts


Danish artist Peter Callesen creates incredible little sculptures out of one sheet of paper. Not even out of an entire sheet of paper, but he sometimes only uses the corners to sculpt intricate architectural forms. Callesen says about his ‘A4 Papercuts’:
“The paper cut sculptures explore the probable and magical transformation of the flat sheet of paper into figures that expand into the space surrounding them. The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in many of the cuts.”
