Check out this amazing paper art made out of
ONE PIECE OF PAPER!
Peter Callesen, a Denmark based artist, says in his
I find the A4 sheet of paper interesting to work with, 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. This means that we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By removing all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white 80gsm A4 paper as a base for my creations, I feel that I have found a material which we all are able to relate to, and at the same time is non-loaded and neutral and therefore easier to fill with different meanings. The thin white paper also gives the paper sculptures a fragility which underlines the tragic and romantic theme of the works.
I love the element of depth and shadow in these shadow box pieces- also made using one piece of paper
And using color and cut out paper
Mr. Callesen's exhibit Out Of Nothing is presently showing in Sweden and will be at the Haugar Vestfold Art Museum in Norway in 2011
