Peter Callesen’s Papercut Art

Castle1

It’s amazing to think that artist Peter Callesen’s can create such intricate worlds all from sheets of plain white paper which can be large scale like Castle (2007) above, or small scale from a single sheet of sized A4 paper. From the site, “A common theme in many of my works is a reinterpretation of classical fairytales as well as a more general interest in memory in connection to childhood – for instance in my performances Castle, Folding and Jukebox. These playful performances exist in the lost land of childhood, between dream and reality and it is in this meeting or confrontation of these two conditions, in a kind of utopian embodiment, that these works of art become alive, often in a tragicomic way.Link.
