This Guy’s Paper Cut-Out Sculptures Are Amazing (Pictures)

Peter Callesen is an author and artist from Denmark. He is most famous for the sculptures he creates by cutting and folding pieces of paper. Here he is discussing his craft:

“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 two-dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the three-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.”
