Framed Paper, Paper art
Peter Callesen has been working 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. It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for his creations.
Callesen feels that he has 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 his works.
Some of the paper works are coloured and framed, using paper only as a source, he creates beautiful sculptural and new creativity methods. I would love to fulfill a wall with some of his framed work.
He is great, check it out his work, so worth it!
