20+ Sculptures Cut from a Single Piece of Paper

By  |  7 Comments

Denmark-born artist Peter Callesen creates incredible works of art from a single sheet of A4 paper. Through an amazing combination of cutting and folding, Callesen creates incredible scenes from the simplest of materials.

[quote style="boxed" ]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. 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.[/quote]
