Outstanding Framed Paper Art You Should Not Miss

In this post we showcase incredibly outstanding framed paper art or paper cut created by Peter Callesen for your inspiration. Peter was born in Denmark in 1967. Lately he worked almost exclusively with white paper in different objects, paper cuts, installations and performances. A large part of his work is made from A4 sheets of paper. His paper artworks are based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality.

By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for his creations, he feel he 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.
