Paper Artwork – Peter Callesen

Well hello there!  I'm finally back home after a week in NYC for the NSS and some anniversary celebrations, and even after just a week away it feels so good to be home.  I'm also excited to get back into a normal posting schedule after more than a week of NSS coverage and round-ups

I thought we'd start the week off with these amazing paper sculptures by Peter Callesen:









Aren't these just gorgeous?  Each one is created using only paper and glue! 

On his website, Peter says that his "paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality."  Peter almost exclusively uses A4-size sheets of paper, "because it is probably the most common and consumed media and format
for carrying information today, and in that sense it is something very
loaded."  Peter then creates each cut in part to highlight the actual material of the paper, the thinness and fragility of which in turn highlights the tragic and romantic theme of the works. 

Check out Peter's website for lots more of these delicate papercut sculptures.  Just gorgeous!
