Peter Callesen

The paper works of Peter Callesen are simply amazing. I am in utter awe of what he can do with a simple sheet of white A4 paper... the process of something so terribly cheap and mass produced suddenly becoming a story, a moment, fragile and beautiful. And little pencil marks.

I find the materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form as an almost magic process - or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is as well an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts. - P. Callesen
